  The importance of land-atmosphere interactions for future changes in extreme rainfall in convection permitting models
  Dr M Widmann, Dr X Cai
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Anthropogenic climate change is expected to lead to substantial increase in extreme precipitation with impact on flooding. However, simulating precipitation and how it may change in the future is still a major challenge, and associated with large uncertainties.
  Self-Organisation of Cooking Emissions in Urban Aerosols?
  Dr C Pfrang, Dr Z Shi
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The project will investigate the potential impact on cloud formation & urban pollution of self-organisation within aerosol particles.
  Time travelling as a powerful approach for the screening of biodiversity
  Dr L Orsini, Dr S He, Prof J B Brown
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Eutrophication and climate change are two of the most pressing environmental issues, affecting up to 50% of aquatic ecosystems worldwide.
  How will forested watersheds store, mix and release water in a Greenhouse World? Effects of elevated CO2 on tree water source apportionment
  Dr J McDonnell, Prof D M Hannah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This NERC CENTA PhD studentship proposal is an ambitious research program to advance the understanding of how forested headwater catchments store, mix and release water.
  Correlative microscopic analysis of uptake, localisation and transformations of nanoscale particles in freshwater foodwebs
  Dr I Lynch, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The potential for human exposure to manufactured nanoparticles (NPs) has increased in recent years, in part through their incorporation into a wide range of commercial goods and medical applications.
  River ecosystem resilience to changing flow regimes
  Dr M E Ledger, Dr A M Milner
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Water scarcity and drought are among the most pressing environmental issues of the century. River ecosystems, already degraded by excessive water use associated with growing populations, will be further affected by widespread shifts in rainfall patterns where climate change alters natural flow regimes.
  Linking impacts of climate change on snow and water resources
  Dr J Larsen
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Rising temperatures are having impacts on many natural environmental systems around the world. High latitude and high elevation areas of the earth are experiencing particularly rapid temperature increases, resulting in changes in vegetation, carbon cycling, and many other ecosystem functions.
  Elucidating the transmission and persistence of antimicrobial resistance genes in the Thames watershed
  Dr J U Kreft
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The widespread use of antibiotics in human and veterinary medicine and as growth promoters in agriculture has not only selected for resistance genes but also for plasmids carrying them.
  The fate of microplastics accumulating at groundwater-surface water interfaces
  Prof S Krause, Dr I Lynch, Prof G Sambrook Smith
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The transport, fate and behaviour of MPs have been studied predominantly in marine ecosystems, with severe knowledge gaps remaining in freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems (Klein et al., 2015; Wagner et al., 2014; Windsor et al., 2018).
  Enhancing peatland resilience to wildfire through peatland habitat restoration; building the evidence base
  Dr N Kettridge
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The recent Saddleworth Moor fire burned over 1000 hectares of UK upland, instigated a major national incident, led to the evacuation of 100 homes and placed considerable strain on UK emergency services, with even the army activated to support fire suppression.
