The fate of microplastics in aquatic environments

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. Hone novel methods to track (real-time) and analyse microplastics. Design mesocosms to study the behaviour of microplastics in riverbed sediments. Read more

Quaternary ice-sheet and climate change on the Northeast Atlantic margin (OP2234)

Knowledge of the past extent and behaviour of ice sheets is needed to understand and model how climatic changes are translated into ice-margin fluctuations, providing important constraints for future predictions of sea-level rise. Read more

Quantifying human-driven threats to marine species (OP2224)

Globally, one million species are at risk of extinction and human-driven pressures on biodiversity continue to increase. A quarter of both marine and terrestrial species are at risk of extinction, yet species in the marine realm are under-studied compared to those in the terrestrial [1]. Read more

Temporal and spatial drivers of nuisance macroalgal blooms in Budle Bay and its implication for biodiversity and ecosystem functioning (OP2220)

Nuisance macroalgal blooms are on the rise globally, driven by anthropogenic drivers such as eutrophication and climate warming. Once established, macroalgal blooms can have significant negative impacts on biodiversity, ecosystem functioning and amenity value, which in turn can have financial impacts e.g. Read more

Improving the representation of the ice shelf ocean cavity circulation in global ocean models (OP2209)

Global sea-level rise is one of the most severe impacts of climate change which threatens large coastal cities and ecosystems. Sea-level rise originates from several sources, including melting of glaciers and ice sheets. Read more

Circulation and melting within the ocean cavities beneath Antactica’s floating ice shelves (OP2262)

Project Description. The protective ring of cold water that shields most of the Antarctic Ice Sheet from the warmth of the Southern Ocean is absent in the Amundsen and Bellingshausen seas, where widespread thinning of the inland ice sheet is observed. Read more

Autonomous technologies and the marine carbon cycle: Impacts of coastal processes on ocean acidification and blue carbon. NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship for 2022 Entry, PhD in Biosciences.

Project Background. Recent environmental and climate initiatives such as ‘habitat restoration’ and ‘Blue Carbon’ aim to increase local biodiversity, support carbon removal from the atmosphere, and alleviate the impacts of stressors such as ocean acidification and deoxygenation. Read more
