  Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows
  Research Group: Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics
  Dr C Vanderwel
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Christina Vanderwel. Project description. There are two openings for PhD students to work on “Simulating urban air pollution in the lab”.
  The physics and biology of the ocean carbon sink: how air-sea interactions affect organic carbon uptake and sequestration in the Southern Ocean.
  Dr D Jones, Dr A Martin, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Prof E Murphy
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The water masses leaving the Southern Ocean form a major conduit of atmospheric carbon into the interior of the global ocean. Part of this transport is via the ‘solubility carbon pump’ whereby CO2 dissolved in seawater is transported into the interior ocean.
  Conversion of carbon dioxide into fuels for energy storage.
  Dr C.A. Ponce-de-Leon-Albarran, Dr L. Wang
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is currently 411 parts per million (ppm) and increases 2 ppm/year possibly due to fossil fuel consumption, deforestation, as well as natural processes contributing to the greenhouse effect such as global warming.
  Storm clustering and its influence on coastal morphology and defence.
  Dr I Haigh
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The coastal zone is widely recognised as important at national, European and global levels, but is facing increasing pressures from climate change.
  Not just going with the flow: does biological production rather than deep water formation drive the Southern Ocean carbon sink?
  Dr P Brown, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr N Briggs
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Southern Ocean (SO) is thought to have absorbed ~40% of all global human-derived (anthropogenic) carbon dioxide and >75% of anthropogenic heat, thus being disproportionately influential in mitigating increasing atmospheric CO2 levels and related climate effects.
  Aurora caused by energetic proton precipitation into the polar atmosphere
  Dr D Whiter, Dr R Fear, Prof B Lanchester
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The aurora is a result of energised charged particles (electrons and protons) travelling down the Earth’s magnetic field lines and colliding with the neutral atmosphere.
  Bayesian analysis of Earth’s climate sensitivity: past, present and future
  Dr P Goodwin, Dr K Oliver, Prof T Tyrrell
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The biggest cause of uncertainty in predicting the magnitude of future global warming, for a given pattern of CO2 emissions, lies in Earth’s ‘climate sensitivity’ (the increase in average surface temperature following a sustained doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide).
  Avalanche dynamics on desert dunes: Processes and drivers, from ancient to modern
  Dr J Nield, Dr R Ewing, Dr M Baddock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Avalanching is responsible for wind-blown dune migration on Earth and Mars and because avalanches are preserved in dune stratigraphy, they are the most direct way that we can interpret past wind-climate conditions.
  Fine-scale electric fields and Joule heating from observations of the Aurora
  Dr R Fear, Dr D Whiter, Prof B Lanchester
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Earth’s aurora borealis (northern lights) are a spectacular natural phenomenon.
