Application Deadline: 29 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.

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: 29 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 CASE: The interaction between carbonates, igneous intrusions and CO2 in the ocean system
  Dr D Muirhead, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 29 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.
  QUADRAT DTP: Assessing the vulnerability of marine ecosystems to climate change in the North East Atlantic
  Dr C T Marshall, Dr P Collins
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to understand the biodiversity and stability (resilience and resistance) of sponge-microbe symbiosis following multiple environmental perturbations influenced by climate change.
  QUADRAT DTP: Is macroalgal carbon sequestration the ’elephant in the Blue Carbon room’ ?
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ’Blue Carbon’.

  Dr S Roy
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine harmful algae cause huge economic and ecological damage through the production of toxins and removal of oxygen from marine waters, affecting the marine wildlife and commercial aquaculture.
