  SCENARIO - A multi-scale modelling approach to bring urban climate and weather into built environment
  Dr Z Luo, Prof S Grimmond
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With rapid global urbanization, more than 50% population now live in cities, and it will be projected to be 70% by 2050. Our living environment is exposed to overheating risk due to the combination of climate extreme, i.e., heatwave and urban heat island.
  SCENARIO - Predicting the ecological and societal impacts of species on the move with climate change in the UK
  Dr N Pettorelli, Dr J Neumann, Prof K Norris, Dr L Shaffrey
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing recognition that the redistribution of species driven by a changing climate is creating profound challenges for societies and regional economies around the globe.
  SCENARIO - Understanding Acute Oak Decline using X-ray micro-tomography and leaf reflectance: linking reduced tree water transport capacity to changes in xylem and leaf cellular structure.
  Dr F Gerard, Dr G Barrett
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

First recorded in the UK in the early 1900’s, Acute Oak Decline (AOD) is widely recognised as a threat to native English oaks. Outbreaks of disease have gone through several historic and distinct episodes with the current, ongoing spread having started around 2002.
  SCENARIO - Love isn’t in the air: Assessing how air pollution interrupts insect sex pheromone signalling
  Dr R Girling
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As humans, the dominant sense with which we perceive the world is vision, in contrast many insects rely upon odours to perceive and interact with their environment.
  SCENARIO - Maximising the environmental benefits of gardens through optimal planting choices and understanding of occupants’ engagement
  Dr J Bishop, Prof M Lukac
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What we plant and how we manage our gardens can have a significant environmental impact. Domestic gardens cover 15-25% of area in most UK towns and cities, and recent research (1,2) links garden plant characteristics with provision of ecosystem services.
  SCENARIO - Climate change and harmful algal growth using laboratory experiments, satellite remote sensing and biogeochemical modelling
  Dr S Roy
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine harmful algae cause huge economic and ecological damage through the production of toxins and removal of oxygen from marine waters, affecting the marine wildlife and commercial aquaculture.
  SCENARIO - Determining carbon pool turnover rates in semi-arid biomes of Australia as drivers of global carbon cycle inter-annual variability
  Dr K.H. White
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The atmospheric carbon component exhibits large interannual variability primarily driven by terrestrial processes, some of which are poorly understood.
  SCENARIO - Soil microbial carbon metabolism for climate positive soils
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr R Griffiths
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  SCENARIO - The domestication of Amazon rainforests by pre-Columbian societies
  Dr F Mayle, Dr JS Singarayer
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extent to which pre-Columbian (pre-AD1492) human societies transformed Amazonia from a virgin wilderness into a domesticated landscape is one of the most contentious debates in tropical ecology.
  SCENARIO - Improving convective storm simulations through scale-adaptive and flow-adaptive sub-grid methods
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr RS Plant, Prof P Clark
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is concerned with improving the numerical simulations required for short-range numerical weather prediction and small-scale regional climate prediction.
