  SCENARIO - Enhancing forecasting flood inundation mapping through data assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof S L Dance, Dr D Mason
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding is major risk for lives and livelihoods around the world. In Europe alone, the annual cost due to flood damage is expected to rise to 100 billion EUR by the year 2080, due to a combination of climate change and socio-economic growth.
  SCENARIO - Exploiting the benefits of convective-scale ensemble forecasts
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr SL Gray, Dr T Frame
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accurate weather forecasts save lives and livelihoods and are important to a host of industries from energy to agriculture and retail.
  SCENARIO - Fundamental Mechanisms of Arctic Summer-time Cyclone Growth and Sea-Ice Interaction
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof J Methven, Dr B Harvey
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the climate has warmed in response to increasing greenhouse gases, the September minimum in Arctic sea-ice extent has decreased dramatically and the drift speed of summer Arctic pack ice has increased, attributed to thinner ice.
  SCENARIO - Generating and evaluating atmospheric dispersion volcanic ash forecast ensembles
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr T Frame, Dr H Dacre
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Volcanic ash poses a significant hazard to aircraft. When ash is ingested into engines it can cause engine failure, putting the lives of aircrew and passengers at risk.
  SCENARIO - Improving convective storm simulations through scale-adaptive and flow-adaptive sub-grid methods
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr RS Plant, Prof P Clark
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is concerned with improving the numerical simulations required for short-range numerical weather prediction and small-scale regional climate prediction.
  SCENARIO - Investigating the climate feedbacks that will determine the fate of the Greenland ice sheet
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Smith, Dr J Gregory, Dr J Robson
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea level change is one of the mostly widely recognised and potentially serious consequences of climate change due to emissions of greenhouse gases.
  SCENARIO - Sub-seasonal “flash” droughts in Europe: dynamics, predictability and teleconnections
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr N Klingaman, Dr B Dong, Prof E Black
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sub-seasonal “flash” drought events are rapidly developing, multi-week periods of elevated temperatures and evapotranspiration, but reduced soil moisture and precipitation.
  SCENARIO - Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr SL Gray
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric models used for numerical weather prediction and climate modelling have large uncertainties in their representation of small-scale processes that contribute to uncertainties in the large-scale movement of air termed the atmospheric circulation.
  SCENARIO - Turbulence and Clouds
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr H Weller, Prof P Clark
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The representations of clouds and associated buoyant atmospheric convection are arguably the weakest aspects of weather and climate models, leading to poor forecasts and unreliable projections of the regional impacts of climate change.
  SCENARIO - Using Aircraft Observations Improve Understanding of Mineral Dust Transport and Deposition Processes
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr C Ryder, Dr N Bellouin
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every year thousands of tonnes of mineral dust particles are uplifted from arid regions by strong winds. While in the atmosphere, mineral dust is a hazard for health, transport and solar energy generation.
  SCENARIO - Using high-resolution climate models to predict increases in atmospheric turbulence
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof P Williams, Dr R Schiemann
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric turbulence is the leading cause of in-flight injuries to air travellers and flight attendants. Tens of thousands of aircraft encounter severe turbulence annually, injuring hundreds of people and causing structural damage to planes.
  Evaluating and improving high-resolution high-impact weather numerical weather forecasts
  Dr RS Plant, Dr T Stein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past decade, high-resolution numerical weather forecasting has become practical using so-called “convection-permitting” models for lead times of 1-24 hours.
  Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models
  Prof P Williams, Dr H Weller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The task of predicting weather and climate may be reduced to the following iterative procedure. First, given the state of the system at any time (the input), use the governing equations to compute the state at a slightly later time (the output).
  New models of Outer Radiation Belt Dynamics
  Dr C Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department hosts a vibrant Space and Atmospheric Electricity group whose research interests span the remit of Space Weather from the Sun through the heliosphere to Earth.
  SCENARIO - A multi-scale modelling approach to bring urban climate and weather into built environment
  Dr Z Luo, Prof S Grimmond
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With rapid global urbanization, more than 50% population now live in cities, and it will be projected to be 70% by 2050. Our living environment is exposed to overheating risk due to the combination of climate extreme, i.e., heatwave and urban heat island.
