  SCENARIO - Capturing extremes in physics-based modelling of near-Earth Space Weather
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr C Watt, Prof P Williams
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Space Weather is the name given to the natural variability of the plasma and magnetic field conditions in near-Earth Space. In the Earth’s outer radiation belt – a region of space between around 2.5 and 10 Earth radii surrounding our planet – high energy electrons are trapped in the Earth’s magnetic field.
  SCENARIO - Using Aircraft Observations Improve Understanding of Mineral Dust Transport and Deposition Processes
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr C Ryder, Dr N Bellouin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every year thousands of tonnes of mineral dust particles are uplifted from arid regions by strong winds. While in the atmosphere, mineral dust is a hazard for health, transport and solar energy generation.
  SCENARIO: Forecast improvements from solar wind data assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof M Owens, Dr M Lang
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The solar wind is a continuous outflow of charged particles and magnetic field from the Sun’s upper atmosphere.
  New models of Outer Radiation Belt Dynamics
  Dr C Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department hosts a vibrant Space and Atmospheric Electricity group whose research interests span the remit of Space Weather from the Sun through the heliosphere to Earth.
