Project Description

Volcanism is a major forcing of natural climate variability, yet the climate sensitivity to individual events and the extent to which past eruptions exerted change over a range of timescales remains poorly understood, due to the limitations of deriving a full record of volcanic events. This project will use microscopic ash deposits preserved within polar ice-cores to identify the timing and source of large eruptions in the past and evaluate their impact on climate.

Entry requirements

Candidates must have a minimum of an upper second class honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject, or an appropriate Master’s degree (with Merit). Informal enquiries are welcome by emailing the project supervisor.

For candidates whose first language is not English, we require IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 in each component) or equivalent. Please visit our website for a list of acceptable English language tests. We prefer candidates to have already met the English Language requirements at the point of application, although this is not a requirement.
