Showing 1 to 13 of 13
  Using multibeam sonar to monitor animal behaviour and environmental interactions at marine renewable energy sites
  Dr B Williamson, Prof V Nikora, Dr J Wilson
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

To date, there are 8.5 GW of installed UK offshore wind capacity, and it is estimated 20% of current UK electricity demand could be met with wave and tidal stream sources.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Acoustic detection & characterisation of cod in the north east Atlantic
  Dr P Fernandes, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After decades of overexploitation in the 20th century, most fish stocks in the North east Atlantic are now sustainably fished and showing strong signs of recovery (Fernandes and Cook, 2013).
  QUADRAT DTP: New methods for the ’visualisation’ of dynamic and multi-dimensional data in Earth and environmental systems
  Dr C Bond, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digitalisation and large, multi-dimensional, dynamic data are now the main stay of Earth and Environmental Science, but how we visualise, handle, analyse and make decisions from these datasets is still a significant challenge.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  Conservation genomics of endangered bird species in zoos (OOSTERHOUTUENV20ARIES)
  Prof C Van Oosterhout, Dr D Bell, Dr S Tollington
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) produces the Red List that classifies species’ extinction risks.
  How does the ocean influence glacial melt in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica? (HALLUENV20ARIES)
  Dr R Hall, Prof K Heywood
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. The Amundsen Sea glaciers in West Antarctica are rapidly melting in response to recent climate warming and related changes in ocean circulation, increasing estimates of future sea level rise.
  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.
  Change in the ice speed and mass balance of the Antarctic Ice Sheet, from Earth Observation satellite data
  Dr A Hogg
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Satellite Earth Observation has revolutionized our understanding of the remote and inaccessible Polar Regions.
  Carbon fluxes in mangrove – seagrass ecosystems
  Prof J Dash, Dr V Byfield, Dr C Evans, Dr A Lichtschlag
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Mangroves are an important and unique costal ecosystem. The carbon storage potential of mangrove and seagrass ecosystems is widely recognized [1].
  Quantifying the role of natural and anthropogenically driven geomorphic disturbances in forest landscapes on global carbon emissions
  Prof SE Darby, Prof J Dash, Dr GJ Roberts
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify (1985-2020) the extent to which the world’s forests have been fragmented by geomorphic disturbances (landsliding and river channel migration) and explore the implications with respect to determining the impacts of this fragmentation and loss on the global carbon cycle.
  Quantifying Variations in Hydrothermal Contributions to the Oceans:Scaling from drill core observations to global models
  Dr R.M. Coggon, Prof D Teagle, Dr B Thornton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Ocean chemistry reflects a dynamic balance between riverine inputs, biological processing, sediment burial, and hydrothermal exchanges with ocean crust.
  The Evolution of Fluvial Sediment Delivery from Asia’s Rivers to the Oceans: Trends and Causes
  Dr J Leyland, Prof SE Darby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify and explain variations (1985-2020) in the discharge of fluvial sediment to the oceans, with a focus on the continent of Asia.
  The Taphonomy of Archaeological Molecular Biomarkers
  Prof A.W Pike, Prof G S Attard, Dr S Bray
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Molecular biomarkers have the potential to reveal archaeologically invisible aspects of the past.
