  Climate Change, Plate Tectonics and Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Our understanding of the transition from the lithospheric plate to the weaker asthenosphere has recently been revolutionized by seismic imaging that finds a sharp, strong discontinuity at the base of the plate.
  Deluge or drought? Climate change and South Asian Monsoon rainfall (WEBBERUENV20ARIES)
  Dr B Webber, Prof D Stevens, Prof M Joshi, Dr AG Turner
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Climate change is expected to profoundly affect the South Asian (Indian) monsoon, with substantial impacts on the livelihoods of over a billion people.
  Machine learning for nearshore wave prediction
  Dr E Medina-Lopez
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Co-Supervisor. Dr Rafael Bergillos, University of Cordoba. Co-Supervisor. Dr Ali Belmadani, Météo France Martinique. Summary. This project will investigate the prediction capabilities of nearshore wave conditions from offshore wave parameters and remotely sensed information, including satellite data and video imagery.
  26 Fully Funded PhD Studentships in Environmental Research NERC

Funding Type

PhD Type

The NERC Panorama DTP has around 24 fully funded studentships for October 2019 starters to study the science of the Earth's atmosphere and climate, Earth processes and the living world.

  Caribbean Subduction: Seismic Imaging of Melt and Volatiles in the Lesser Antilles with joint inversion, full-waveform, and machine learning approaches
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Dense oceanic tectonic plates sink beneath buoyant continental plates at subduction zones. The ocean plate adds volatiles like water to the mantle, lowering the melting temperature, and enabling melting and eventually creating volcanoes at Earth’s surface.
  Determining Earth’s Volatile Cycling using Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s volatile cycle is fundamental to human existence on the planet. However, precise constraints on this system have proved challenging.
  Earth and Environment from Fiber Optic and Seismic Wave Analyses
  Dr C Rychert, Dr A Masoudi, Dr N Harmon, Prof M Srokosz
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Much of our direct imaging and understanding of Earth’s subsurface comes from data collected by relatively sparse deployments of seismometers.
  Onshore/Offshore Seismic Imaging of the New Zealand Subduction Zone
  Dr N Harmon, Prof L McNeill, Dr C Rychert
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The behaviours and processes that occur at subduction zones inform our global understanding of plate boundary interaction at a variety of scales with broad implications for plate tectonics, volatiles cycling, seismic hazard and climate.
  Predicting future methane release from the seabed due to Arctic warming and sea ice retreat
  Dr Y Aksenov, Dr H Moreno, Dr B Sinha, Dr K Oliver
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Methane hydrate is an ice-like substance that is stable at high pressures and low temperatures and is present beneath the seabed on continental margins.
