Establishing the empirical basis for microclimatic buffering as a nature-based adaptation to climate change

Project Description. Nature-based ‘autonomous’ adaptations to climate change have the potential to mitigate adverse impacts on biodiversity, yet their efficacy at broad scales and across multiple taxonomic groups remains poorly understood1. Read more

Circulation and melting within the ocean cavities beneath Antactica’s floating ice shelves

Project Description. The protective ring of cold water that shields most of the Antarctic Ice Sheet from the warmth of the Southern Ocean is absent in the Amundsen and Bellingshausen seas, where widespread thinning of the inland ice sheet is observed. Read more

The determinants and consequences of integrated reporting quality: An empirical analysis using worldwide voluntary adopters (Advert Reference: RDF22/BL/AFM/SOBHAN)

Every day we come across reports that business organisation fails to integrate sustainability into their core business model despite this integration is necessary to ensure sustainable returns to shareholders in the long run and accountability to stakeholders and society at large. Read more

Carbon cycling in next-generation terrestrial ecosystem models

Terrestrial ecosystems are presently removing about 25% of the carbon dioxide emitted by human activities, but the exact mechanisms and the locations of carbon uptake are still under debate. Read more

Memory in vegetation response to environmental fluctuations (Advert Reference: RDF22/EE/GES/LIU)

Plants live in and respond to fluctuating environments around them. Importantly, many plant responses are not only driven by current environmental conditions, but show “memory” to conditions in the past. Read more

Developing methods to quantify the potential for greenhouse gas removal using bioenergy - carbon capture and storage to speed up the establishment and uptake of perennial Bio-energy crops.

Background. Crop yield and soil carbon turnover models are parameterized by using data from carefully controlled and measured field and lab experiments and when used spatially in predictive mode are driven by existing spatial data sets of weather, climate, soil types and land use at various scales.

PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences: Scaling up Greening the Grey and Eco-engineering Science through partnership with coastal infrastructure asset managers: creating co-benefits for science and operational practice

Do you want to do cutting edge research that is also useful for improving ecosystem services in our coastal cities and towns? Are you interested in using marine ecology and coastal geomorphology science to enhance ecosystem services on coastal engineering assets? If yes, this project will hopefully excite and appeal to you!. Read more

Understanding the role of the ocean in climate variability

A fully-funded PhD studentship is available on the role of the ocean in the climate system. The extent to which the ocean contributes to climate variability on year-to-year and decade-to-decade timescales remains largely unclear. Read more

Observations of forest carbon / ecosystem services trade-offs in the UK

Project Highlights. Satellite imagery will be used to map forest biomass stocks in the United Kingdom. Using remotely sensed data and models to monitor the status of ecosystem services such as habitat quality, recreation, timber production, biodiversity, scenic beauty, water supply and carbon storage.
