Leveraging polysaccharide degrading abilities of wastewater treatment microbiomes to develop clean future polymers

The overarching goal of this project is to characterise the natural polysaccharide-degrading ability of wastewater treatment plant microbiomes to tailor production of functionalised 'clean future polymers' that are likely to be degraded prior to discharge of wastewater back into the environment.

Understanding radionuclide behaviour at the plant-soil interface to direct bioremediation strategies for contaminated land

This PhD project will use plant biology, microbiology, soil geochemistry, and radiochemistry approaches to investigate the role that plants and associated microorganisms can play in managing and potentially decontaminating radioactive contaminated land, such as by ‘phytoremediation’. Read more

Geological Fate and Impact of Isosaccharinic acid (Geo-FISA)

About the Project. The nuclear fuel cycle has generated higher-level radioactive wastes that will be disposed of in a deep geological facility (GDF) that will provide multiple barriers to the migration of radionuclides to the surface over prolonged timescales (tens of thousands of years). Read more

Open-path FTIR measurements of volcanic plumes

This project focusses on the measurement of volcanic plumes using ground-based open path Fourier transform spectroscopy, a powerful technique which allows quantification of volcanic gases in volcanic plumes. Read more

Drone-based measurements of volcanic gas

This project focusses on the measurement of volcanic gases using airborne drones. Accurate measurement of volcanic gas composition and gas flux provide powerful insights into the natural processes which control precursory, eruptive and post-eruptive volcanic activity. Read more

Atmospheric transport and orographic rainfall of microplastics

Microplastics are transported in the natural environment by a wide range of processes and as a consequence are found in all environments, from the highest mountains to the deepest oceans, in urban environments and polar ice caps. Read more

Searching for dust storms using emerging machine-learning techniques

Introduction. Atmospheric mineral dust is a key component of the Earth system. It affects the radiation budget through atmospheric absorption and scattering, it is a condensation nucleus in clouds and once it is deposited it can act as a nutrient for iron-limited ecosystems. Read more
