  Closing loopholes in the nitrogen cycle: Nitrification now and in the future
  Dr A Yool, Prof T Tyrrell, Dr A Martin, Prof N Bates
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Nitrification ( oxidation) of ammonia (NH3) back to nitrate (NO3-) is an important regenerative step in the nitrogen cycles of both marine and terrestrial systems.
  Catastrophic change to Earth’s magnetic field
  Dr C Xuan, Prof P Wilson, Dr G Hellio
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Earth’s magnetic field provides a protective shield from harmful effects of the solar wind, but field strength and behaviour are constantly changing.
  Asian Monsoon drought and flood intensity: testing predicted response to changes in global warmth and polar ice volume
  Prof P Wilson, Dr C Xuan, Dr A Crocker
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Asian Monsoon (AM) is a major component of the global climate system, affecting the lives of four billion people. Chinese cave deposits suggest [1] that AM intensity is strongly influenced by orbitally forced changes in insolation but only weakly affected by glacial–interglacial cycles.
  The ocean’s role in the Climate of the North Atlantic Region
  Dr B Sinha, Dr B Moat, Dr R Marsh, Prof S Josey
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The North Atlantic Ocean undergoes multidecadal variations in sea-surface temperature (SST) (Kushnir, 1994) with major impacts on the weather and climate of adjacent land regions, a phenomenon known as Atlantic Multidecadal Variability (AMV).
  Understanding the impacts of droughts and heatwaves on global energy production and associated GHG emissions, and potential feedbacks with climate.
  Prof J Sheffield, Dr F Eigenbrod
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Power generation is highly dependent on water resources, either directly from hydropower (16% of global production) or via cooling of thermoelectric power plants (70% globally), and therefore subject to reductions during droughts and heatwaves.
  Challenging theories on the latitudinal coherence of the AMOC
  Dr A Sanchez-Franks, Dr E Frajka-Williams, Prof H Bryden
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) is a large-scale oceanic circulation comprised of currents that carry warm, shallow water northwards and return cold deep-water southwards.
  Ocean acidification monitoring using novel sensing technologies on marine autonomous platforms
  Dr S Loucaides, Dr N Lawrence, Dr M Mowlem, Dr A Nightingale
Application Deadline: 4 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since the beginning of the industrial revolution the ocean has become more acidic due to uptake of atmospheric CO2, a process that is projected to continue under current scenarios.
  Quantifying Variations in Hydrothermal Contributions to the Oceans:Scaling from drill core observations to global models
  Dr R.M. Coggon, Prof D Teagle, Dr B Thornton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ocean chemistry reflects a dynamic balance between riverine inputs, biological processing, sediment burial, and hydrothermal exchanges with ocean crust.
  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.
  The death of oceanic mesoscale energy at western boundaries of ocean basins
  Dr E Frajka-Williams, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr G Evans, Dr L Clement
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mesoscale eddies – swirling vortices of water 100-200 km across—are highly energetic and ubiquitous in the world’s oceans, acting to redistribute energy and properties and potentially modulating the strength of the large-scale ocean circulation.
