4D Seismic Inversion for Quantitative Interpretation - Edinburgh Time-Lapse Project (ETLP)

  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
The interpretation and analysis of 4D seismic data for monitoring hydrocarbon and CO. 2. reservoirs is one of the most exciting and active subjects of research in the energy industry. Read more

Reducing the persistent uncertainty in how aerosols affect climate change

Aerosols from air pollution are the cause of the largest uncertainty in historical climate change. Changes in historical temperature are caused by a combination of greenhouse gas warming and aerosol-induced cooling. Read more

Bell Burnell PhD Scholarship in Physics and Astronomy

Overview. The Institute of Physics (IoP) and a renowned physicist Professor Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell launched the Bell Burnell Graduate Scholarship Fund to encourage greater diversity in physics. Read more

Controlling the microbial generation of nitrous oxide in wastewater treatment; a pathway to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

The wastewater treatment (WWT) process is arguably the most important biotechnological application in the modern world. Each day, large volumes of influent wastewater are processed in municipal WWT plants so that safe effluent is returned to the water cycle. Read more

Understanding changes in temperature persistence under global warming

A fully-funded PhD studentship is available in the physics of climate change. The project will focus on changes in surface temperature “persistence” - or “memory” under climate change. Read more

Modelling the behaviour of legacy radioactive particles in the marine environment at Dounreay

Dounreay Site Restoration Limited (DSRL) is funding research through the University of the Highlands and Islands for a critical PhD project to model the behaviour of legacy radioactive particles in the marine environment at Dounreay. Read more

SCENARIO: Discovering the Mechanisms Behind “Forecast Busts” (SC2022_20)

Numerical weather prediction (NWP) has become the essential forecasting tool that works well in the vast majority of cases. However, occasionally there are “forecast busts", in which the forecast skill at five- to six-day lead time drops to almost zero across the world's leading NWP centres. Read more

SCENARIO: How does boundary layer variability affect cumulus and convective storm development? (SC2022_17)

Accurate forecasting of convective storms in the UK remains a challenge. Modelling studies have demonstrated that surface inhomogeneities introduce boundary-layer variability in terms of humidity and vertical motion, which affects the evolution of subsequent clouds and convective storms. Read more

SCENARIO: Using data science with multi-fluid modelling of atmospheric convection (SC2022_12)

The fusion of high-resolution modelling and data science is the future of weather and climate research. This is reflected in the new generation of supercomputers which combine general-purpose computing with artificial intelligence. Read more

SCENARIO: The role of anthropogenic aerosol in near-future sub-Saharan precipitation change (SC2022_10)

Sub-Saharan Africa is densely populated and highly sensitive to climate change. West Africa has experienced both prolonged periods of drought and increased flooding over the last 50 years, and there is substantial concern that intensifying climate risk will exacerbate existing vulnerabilities. Read more

SCENARIO: Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere (SC2022_07)

Atmospheric models used for numerical weather prediction and climate projections have significant uncertainties in their representation of small-scale processes that contribute to errors in the modelled atmospheric circulation. Read more
