  Testing the links between magmatic, tectonic and climate controls on hydrothermal activity at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge
  Dr A Lichtschlag, Dr B Murton, Prof R James
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. High temperature hydrothermal activity at mid-ocean ridges is driven mainly by magmatic heat and crystallization and responds to structural processes that open-up and maintain fluid pathways from the interior of the ocean crust to the seafloor.
  Abrupt climate change during the last deglaciation: linking records from Greenland to central Europe.
  Prof A Kemp, Prof PG Langdon, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The last deglaciation (16,000 – 11,000 years ago) was Earth’s most recent massive climate change but its dynamics are not adequately understood.
  Impact of a newly identified mechanism: pathways for Arctic freshwater in the subpolar North Atlantic Ocean
  Prof P Holliday, Dr R Marsh, Dr B Sinha, Dr G Evans
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Variable seawater properties and flows in the upper 1000 m of the eastern subpolar North Atlantic are a primary control of the strength of the Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC) and the associated transport of heat that is so important for the UK and global climate (Lozier et al., 2019).
  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).
  Scale dependency of benthic biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in the North Sea
  Dr J Godbold, Prof M Solan, Dr J Leyland, Dr C Garcia
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine ecosystems and the societal services they support are currently experiencing dramatic alterations due to direct and indirect human impacts such as overfishing, pollution, habitat modification and anthropogenic climate change.
  Plankton size, climate and ocean function through time.
  Dr S Gibbs, Dr B Ward, Prof P Bown
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Plankton are fundamental to life on Earth as the base of the marine food web and an important carbon sink.
  Carbon fluxes in mangrove – seagrass ecosystems
  Prof J Dash, Dr V Byfield, Dr C Evans, Dr A Lichtschlag
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Mangroves are an important and unique costal ecosystem. The carbon storage potential of mangrove and seagrass ecosystems is widely recognized [1].
  Predicting future methane release from the seabed due to Arctic warming and sea ice retreat
  Dr Y Aksenov, Dr H Moreno, Dr B Sinha, Dr K Oliver
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Methane hydrate is an ice-like substance that is stable at high pressures and low temperatures and is present beneath the seabed on continental margins.
  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

Project Rationale. Earth’s magnetic field provides a protective shield from harmful effects of the solar wind, but field strength and behaviour are constantly changing.
