  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

Project Rationale. 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.
  Antarctica before ice sheets: polar climate history of past greenhouse worlds.
  Dr S Bohaty, Dr CD Hillenbrand, Assoc Prof R Levy, Prof P Wilson
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. During the extremely warm global ’greenhouse’ period 50 million years ago, Antarctica was mostly ice free and hosted temperate forests in coastal regions of the continent.
  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

Project Rationale. Ocean chemistry reflects a dynamic balance between riverine inputs, biological processing, sediment burial, and hydrothermal exchanges with ocean crust.
  What controls the warming of the Antarctic Bottom Water supply to the Atlantic Ocean?
  Dr P Abrahamsen, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr E Frajka-Williams, Prof M Meredith
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. During the last three decades, the Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW) that fills the bulk of the ocean abyss has exhibited a striking warming and contraction in volume over much of the world ocean, particularly in the Atlantic basin.
  Can enhanced weathering provide an effective climate change mitigation strategy?
  Dr C Pearce, Dr G Andrews, Prof R James
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Anthropogenic inputs of carbon dioxide (CO2) to the atmosphere are the primary cause of global warming.
  Holocene reconstruction of terrestrial habitats and dispersal pathways in the Antarctic Peninsula and sub-Antarctic Islands
  Dr S Nogue-Bosch, Prof Peter Convey, Prof ME Edwards, Dr D.A. Hodgson
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Terrestrial environments of the sub-Antarctic and Antarctic present extreme challenges for life.
  Physical and biogeochemical controls on the marine primary productivity of the Galápagos Archipelago
  Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr A Forryan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The waters surrounding the Galápagos Archipelago (GA) are an iconic biological hot spot.
  Changing Ocean Freshwater and Heat Transports and Atlantic Climate Tipping Points
  Dr J Mecking, Prof S Drijfhout, Prof P Holliday
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Abrupt climate changes can have large and devastating socio-economic impacts, therefore being able to simulate them in future climate scenarios is of great importance.
  Global phylo-epidemiology Vibrio parahaemolyticus within a context of climate change
  Prof J Martinez-Urtaza, Prof C Hauton, Dr R Marsh
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Vibrio parahaemolyticus (Vp) is a marine bacterium and a natural inhabitant of coastal environments worldwide.
  Antarctic benthic Mollusca: biodiversity, community and functional group structure in habitats influenced by varying ice-cover and the Weddell Gyre
  Dr K Linse, Dr P Fenberg, Dr H Griffiths
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Southern Ocean (SO) and its Antarctic component are globally important in understanding how ecosystems and biodiversity respond to climate change.
