  Climate Change, Plate Tectonics and Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Our understanding of the transition from the lithospheric plate to the weaker asthenosphere has recently been revolutionized by seismic imaging that finds a sharp, strong discontinuity at the base of the plate.
  Determining Earth’s Volatile Cycling using Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s volatile cycle is fundamental to human existence on the planet. However, precise constraints on this system have proved challenging.
  Caribbean Subduction: Seismic Imaging of Melt and Volatiles in the Lesser Antilles with joint inversion, full-waveform, and machine learning approaches
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Dense oceanic tectonic plates sink beneath buoyant continental plates at subduction zones. The ocean plate adds volatiles like water to the mantle, lowering the melting temperature, and enabling melting and eventually creating volcanoes at Earth’s surface.
  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.
  Evolution of Southern Ocean temperature and Antarctic circumpolar circulation.
  Dr S Bohaty, Prof P Wilson, Dr CD Hillenbrand, Assoc Prof H Scher
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) through the Drake Passage is the primary conduit for modern surface and deep-water communication between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
  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.
  The role of tides in shaping Antarctic climate variability
  Dr R Marsh, Dr I Haigh
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The melting of the Antarctic ice-sheet is one of the most alarming consequences of climate change.
  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.
  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.
