  Enhancing forecasting flood inundation mapping through data assimilation
  Dr S L Dance, Dr S Vetra-Carvalho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding is major risk for lives and livelihoods around the world. In Europe alone, the annual cost due to flood damage is expected to rise to 100 billion EUR by the year 2080, due to a combination of climate change and socio-economic growth.

  Evaluating and improving high-resolution high-impact weather numerical weather forecasts
  Dr RS Plant, Dr T Stein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past decade, high-resolution numerical weather forecasting has become practical using so-called “convection-permitting” models for lead times of 1-24 hours.
  Flow processes and turbulent exchange in urban canopies
  Dr J Barlow, Dr O Coceal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models
  Prof P Williams, Dr H Weller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The task of predicting weather and climate may be reduced to the following iterative procedure. First, given the state of the system at any time (the input), use the governing equations to compute the state at a slightly later time (the output).
  Towards a theory for the surface layer of the ocean: clarifying the contribution of non-breaking waves to the observed differences between the oceanic surface layer and its atmospheric counterpart
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr A Grant
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we intend to clarify the contribution of non-breaking waves to the observed differences between the oceanic surface layer and its atmospheric counterpart, and to formulate a systematic description of its scaling properties regarding, for example, heat and momentum fluxes, as achieved for the atmosphere by Monin-Obukhov theory.
  Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr SL Gray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric models used for numerical weather prediction and climate modelling have large uncertainties in their representation of small-scale processes that contribute to uncertainties in the large-scale movement of air termed the atmospheric circulation.
  Passive cooling in cities: a multi-scale modelling approach
  Dr Z Luo, Prof S Grimmond, Dr T Sun
Application Deadline: 15 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Passive cooling (e.g. Natural ventilation) is regarded as an important building technology to reduce energy consumption, overheating risk and promote sustainability in the built environment.
