Bringing light to life: a global study of the interface between underwater light and marine phytoplankton

Historically, oceanographers have used the pigment chlorophyll-a as the primary currency of photosynthetic biomass because it is relatively simple to measure in seawater and is found in all marine phytoplankton. Read more

Environmental controls on calcification of phytoplankton from the geological record

Why are the oceans supersaturated with respect to calcium carbonate? Foraminifera and coccolithophores generate over 2 billion tonnes of carbonate/yr1 but what limits this production? Our lack of understanding of the response of pelagic calcification to environmental change hinders any predictions of the future ocean carbon cycle and ecosystem. Read more

Dynamic adaptive pathways to manage nuisance macroalgal blooms (NMBs) in the south coast of England

We expect candidates to develop a research proposal for the following topic. This is an exciting opportunity for interdisciplinary researchers interested in modelling human-environment interactions at the coast, identifying the potential outcomes from alternative governance scenarios. Read more

Digital Twin Life Prediction Method for Wind Turbine Pitch Bearings

This PhD scholarship is offered by the Aura Centre for Doctoral Training in Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment; a partnership between the Universities of Durham, Hull, Newcastle and Sheffield. Read more

Biomass accumulation and biodiversity on artificial structures in coastal waters and their contribution to carbon cycling

  Research Group: Geography and Environmental Studies
When humans build structures or moor buoys out in coastal waters, seaweeds, shellfish and other organisms will grow on them. This creates drag and over time adds a lot of weight to the structure, so this material is considered biofouling and generally needs to be removed every few years. Read more

Past and modern changes in North Atlantic Ocean circulation

  Research Group: Geography and Environmental Studies
Ocean circulation is an active player in the global climate system. Knowledge of variations in ocean currents over time has therefore the potential to inform our understanding of changes in the climate system at different timescales. Read more

Optimising multiple Natural Flood Management solutions. CASE++ Fully-funded PhD with University of Exeter, Devon County Council, EA and DRIP partners.

Introduction. Flood-risks are increasing globally, under the twin pressures of climate and land-use change. Whilst conventional solutions to mitigate flooding are proven, they are also costly and often do not deliver environmental resilience in a holistic sense or in the long-term. Read more

Wake induced mixing of stratified seas by offshore wind infrastructure

This PhD scholarship is offered by the Aura Centre for Doctoral Training in Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment; a partnership between the Universities of Durham, Hull, Newcastle and Sheffield. Read more
