  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.
  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.
  That sinking feeling - how do marine diatoms actively control sinking rates?
  Dr G Wheeler, Prof C Moore, Dr K Helliwell
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Diatoms are one of the most important groups of phytoplankton in our oceans and make a major contribution to the global carbon cycle.
  The Ultimate Limiting Nutrient for Oceanic Primary Production
  Prof T Tyrrell, Dr A Yool, Dr J Wilson
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. In order to know how Earth’s climate system works, we need to understand what controls oceanic primary production.
  Dynamics of a wave propelled surface vessel
  Dr N Townsend, Dr D Taunton, Dr M Tan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to establish the fundamental principles of a novel, submerged tandem flapping foil mechanism to convert ocean wave energy directly into propulsion for ASVs.
  Getting the most out of deep-sea images for ecological assessment
  Dr B Thornton, Dr J Durden, Dr B Bett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Monitoring benthic communities is a fundamental, and in many jurisdictions legal, requirement for the conservation of habitats (e.g.
  Rogue waves
  Prof M Srokosz, Dr R Marsh, Dr B Moat
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Rogue waves are ocean surface gravity waves whose waveheights are much larger than that expected given the background wave conditions (e.g.
  Quantification of benthic invertebrate burrow architecture
  Prof M Solan, Dr J Leyland, Dr J Godbold, Mr M Mavrogordato
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine sediments provide habitat for a wide range of organisms and exploitation of this three-dimensional environment is important in mediating major ecosystem properties.
