  Disentangling palaeodiet: Modern and archaeological case studies in compound-specific nitrogen isotope analysis - QUADRAT
  Dr K Britton, Dr N Ogle
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The nitrogen isotope analysis of individual amino acids represents a potentially powerful tool for estimating trophic positions and the source of dietary protein in archaeological case studies.
  Sea-level change and conservation, past, present and future - QUADRAT
  Dr J Neilson, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Strangford Lough in Northern Ireland is a unique marine water body, a large deep inland sea connected to the open ocean by a narrow channel that creates tidal currents of speeds up to 9 knots.
  Speciation Dynamics in Wallacea: Implications for Conservation on Sulawesi.
  Dr G Bocedi, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Wallacea has a unique fauna and flora characterised by incredibly high levels of biodiversity and endemism, and which is threatened by changing land use, exploitation and climate change.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  Reconstructing lost worlds – Quaternary continental Ostracoda as tools in geoarchaeology
  Dr P Frenzel
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Ostracods are one of the main palaeontological proxies in Quaternary continental systems because of their ecological sensitiveness, wide distribution, often high abundance and high diversity.
  Comparing Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functions of Restored and Natural Mangrove Forests in Indonesia using Palynology and plant DNA metabarcoding (Ref: OP19_23)
  Prof U Salzmann
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mangrove forests are uniquely valuable tropical coastal wetlands in the transition zone be- tween land and sea that suffer significant destruction worldwide.
  From Greenhouse to Icehouse: Past changes in southern hemisphere vegetation and the evolution of the Antarctic ice sheet (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/SALZMANN)
  Prof U Salzmann
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
How stable were Antarctic Ice Sheets during warm climate intervals in the past? What are the main events and processes controlling Antarctic climate and how are they related to global environmental change? The polar regions play a key role in our understanding of environmental change in a future warmer-than-present world.
  Ice Sheet Influences on Tropical Climate (Ref: OP19_32)
  Dr W Roberts
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Records of the past climate in the tropics are generally interpreted within the context of either changing orbital configuration, which alters the amount of energy received from the sun, or changing greenhouse gas concentrations.
  Oligocene to Miocene vegetation and climate dynamics on the edge of Europe. (Ref: OP19_46)
  Dr M Pound
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Globally the late Oligocene to middle Miocene was a time interval of warmer than modern temperatures. The late Oligocene was an interval of relatively warm global climate, whilst the early Miocene was one of significant fluctuations in global temperatures.
  Sediment flux in and around the Sør Rondans Mountains in East Antarctica (RDF19/EE/GES/WINTER)
  Dr K Winter
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Sediments in glacial systems can alter frictional stress at the glacier bed, modify ice flow speeds and change ice flow direction through long-term erosive processes.
