  Acoustic detection & characterisation of cod in the north east Atlantic.
  Dr P Fernandes, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
After decades of overexploitation in the 20th century, most fish stocks in the North east Atlantic are now sustainably fished and showing strong signs of recovery (Fernandes and Cook, 2013).
  Monitoring marine plankton biodiversity and community dynamics using third-generation DNA metabarcoding.
  Dr A Douglas, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Marine plankton respond rapidly to environmental change associated with climate change and also emissions of waste and pollutants, which may cause significant losses in biodiversity and impact ecosystem resilience.
  Transformation of Antarctic Benthic Food Webs on the Larsen Ice Shelf following climate-change driven changes in food supply
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Transformation of Antarctic Benthic Food Webs on the Larsen Ice Shelf following climate-change driven changes in food supply.
  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Variable Structure Control for Passive Heave Compensation System in Offshore Cranes
  Dr M Aleyaasin, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round
In this project, passive heave compensation system in offshore cranes are investigated. An integrated model will be developed by which heave amplitude in various sea states can be computed.
  Assessing the impacts of oil and gas decommissioning on population connectivity and community structure of native and invasive marine invertebrates using next-generation DNA technology - National Decommissioning Centre
  Dr A Douglas, Prof S Piertney
Application Deadline: 14 February 2019
Oil and gas infrastructure represent an important network of hard substrates that facilitates the stepping stone migration of both native and non-native marine invasive species.
  Ecological impacts of microplastic pollution in freshwater habitats
  Dr D Green, Dr T Ings
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
  Climate change effects on coastal flooding: are models fit-for-purpose and how do we mitigate the risk?
  Dr P Robins
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Coastal flooding has been ranked the second highest risk for civil emergency in the UK, costing £0.25bn annually in economic loss.
  Dispersal of Microplastics in the Marine Environment
  Dr S Neill
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
With an estimated 8 million tonnes of plastic entering our oceans each year, marine plastics are one of the biggest and most immediate threats facing the marine environment.
  Impact of sea level rise on atmospheric CO2 concentration over glacial-deglacial periods
  Dr T Rippeth
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
One of the great under-answered questions in the geosciences relates to the cause of the big drop in the concentration of CO2 in the preindustrial atmosphere during ice ages.
