  Can Glacial Flour Stimulate N Cycling in Croplands? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J L Wadham, Dr F Sgouridis
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Glacial flour produced from the erosive force of glaciers contains a multitude of minerals that if applied to cropland soils it could chemically weather in situ, potentially increasing soil fertility and reducing the need for chemical fertilisers.
  Extreme Events in the Anthropocene Ocean - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr O Andrews
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. There is growing recognition that, in the ocean just as on land, climate change might stack the deck in favour of more intense and longer lasting extreme events.
  Glacier Lake Outburst Floods in Chilean Patagonia – detection, prediction and impacts - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J L Wadham, Dr J Neal
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Glacier Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs) occur when meltwater drains catastrophically from lakes damned by moraine or by a glacier margin.
  Impacts of Glacier Retreat in the Peruvian Andes on River Water Quality - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J L Wadham, Dr C Yates
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Peruvian glaciers, like most tropical glaciers, have witnessed high rates of mass loss over the last 30 years due to warming temperatures and changing precipitation.
  Is Arctic sea ice getting smoother and does it matter? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J Landy
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About The Project. We have observed unprecedented changes in the Arctic’s sea ice cover over recent decades. The area covered by sea ice at the end of summer has declined by over 13% per decade and the amount of thick, old ice in the Arctic has almost halved.
  Modelling Global Floods - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Prof P Bates, Dr J Neal
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Floods are the costliest and most deadly class of natural disaster, affecting 78.1 million people and causing $59Bn in damages in 2016 alone.
  New geophysical parameters of melting Arctic sea ice from airborne LiDAR data - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J Landy
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About The Project. A key feature regulating the melt rate of Arctic sea ice during summer is the fractional coverage of meltwater ponds at the ice surface.
  Retreating Glaciers and Toxic Rivers: disentangling the history of water quality in the deglaciating Peruvian Andes - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J L Wadham, Dr C Williams
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Peru holds >70% of the world’s tropical glaciers, all of which have undergone high rates of mass loss in the last three decades due to changing climate.
  Validating Apparent Urban Areas - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr LJ Wolf, Dr S Fox
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Using large amounts of new, high-quality satellite data and new machine learning methods, novel ways of understanding the "true" footprint of the city are at hand.
  What Would A ‘Just Transition’ In Bristol Look Like?
  Dr E Atkins, Dr J House
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. In November 2018, Bristol declared a ‘climate emergency’ and pledged to be carbon-neutral by 2030. This comes with radical policy implications, with such action likely to have far-reaching and cross-sectoral consequences.
