Showing 1 to 10 of 10
  Spilling into confinement: submarine slope valleys as pollutant and carbon sinks
  Prof DM Hodgson, Prof J Peakall, Dr I Kane
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Highlights. An opportunity to investigate the distribution of organic carbon and pollutants in deep-marine channels, with societal and economic implications.
  Warm climate, high seas. How did sea level change in Europe during the Last Interglacial?
  Dr N Barlow, Dr L Gregoire
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The big picture. Global sea-level rise is one of our greatest environmental challenges and is predicted to continue for hundreds of years, even if global greenhouse-gas emissions are stopped immediately (Clark et al., 2016).
  Wavy Jets and Arctic Climate Change - Examining the nature of the Arctic and its relationship to the jet stream and European weather/climate in the past
  Prof A Haywood, Dr D Hill
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Rising temperatures due to the emission of greenhouse gases may be changing atmospheric circulation. This is expressed most clearly by changes in regional weather patterns, and in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events.
  How did the first animals and plants change our planet?
  Dr B Mills, Dr R Newton, Prof S Poulton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project aims to understand the changes in Earth’s surface conditions during the Paleozoic era, which saw the evolution of land plants and the rapid diversification of animal life.
  The Ice Age, oceans and climate: triggers of iceberg calving and rapid temperature change
  Dr R Ivanovic, Dr L Gregoire
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This PhD project will use climate/ice-sheet modelling to establish the complex chain of events that took place early in the last deglaciation, linking catastrophic ice sheet collapse, iceberg armadas, rapid cooling, abrupt warming and the complete reorganisation of largescale Atlantic Ocean circulation.
  Severe weather over Southeast Asia: fieldwork and modelling
  Dr C Birch, Dr J Marsham, Dr R Neely
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The Maritime Continent in Southeast Asia is a key region in the global weather and climate system. Its complex island geography and position among the warmest oceans on Earth lead to a multi-scale concoction of severe atmospheric convective and dynamical weather systems.
  Petrological & geochemical insights into subduction initiation- the case of Izu-Bonin-Mariana volcanic arc
  Dr I Savov, Dr D Ferguson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Convergent margins mark sites of plate destruction and are unique to Earth among the terrestrial planets. However, currently we lack clear understanding of why and how they are initiated.
  Ironing out the carbon cycle: Carbon burial associated with iron oxides in Arctic shelf sediments
  Dr C Marz, Prof C.L. Peacock
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
As marine geoscientists, we are interested in the capability of the world’s oceans to sequester atmospheric CO2 into photosynthetic algal biomass, and to ultimately lock it away in seafloor sediments when this biomass dies and sinks to the ocean depths.
  Marine micronutrient cycling between sediments and seawater: What controls the concentration and isotopic composition of micronutrient trace metals in the global oceans?
  Prof C.L. Peacock, Dr C Marz
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
WHAT IS THIS PROJECT ABOUT & WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?. In this project you will use new and exciting experimental and analytical approaches to investigate how micronutrients in seawater are taken up into fine-grained reactive minerals in marine sediments.
  Ocean Sulfate and Earth’s Surface Evolution
  Dr R Newton, Dr B Mills, Dr T Aze, Prof L Benning
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Ocean sulfate is an underappreciated control on the evolution of Earth’s surface environment. Sulfate concentrations have changed a lot over the course of Earth’s history, but the effect on the biogeochemical cycles of other elements and the links to evolutionary events has received relatively little attention.
