Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decades, it has emerged that increased CO2 in the atmosphere since the industrial revolution is one of the main drivers of accelerated global climate change.

  Dr T Bibby, Dr P Lam, Prof W Huang
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Complex marine microbial communities catalyze global cycling of carbon and nitrogen that regulate the Earth’s climate.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: The interaction between carbonates, igneous intrusions and CO2 in the ocean system
  Dr D Muirhead, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contact metamorphism of carbonaceous sedimentary rocks can lead to the release of significant volumes of gases, particularly CO2 and related fluids.
  Blue carbon change on polar continental shelves with ocean colour & current dynamics
  Dr D K A Barnes
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Marine ice losses around the polar regions are one of the most fundamental physical responses of the Earth system to rising atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations.
  Regional 3D atmosphere and ocean models to quantify the impact of oceanic sources on the regional Hg budget.
  Dr N Pirrone
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To improve the modelling of Hg red-ox chemistry schemes in the atmosphere and implement exchange processes between the ocean and the atmosphere to facilitate the coupling between 3D atmospheric and oceanic models; to evaluate model updates using observational data and investigate the role of oceanic emissions; to investigate the impact of emission changes on Hg cycling in Europe.

  Onshore/Offshore Seismic Imaging of the New Zealand Subduction Zone
  Dr N Harmon, Prof L McNeill, Dr C Rychert
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020
