PhD projects

Applications for PhD studentships via the NERC GW4+ doctoral training partnership are now closed for the 2018 intake. I am always keen to hear from prospective students who are interested in studying greenhouse gases and ozone depleting substances, so feel free to get in touch. Recently advertised projects are below.

 


NERC GW4+ DTP projects 2018 (NOW CLOSED)

Megacity carbon emissions from atmospheric data (CASE award with the National Physical Laboratory, NPL). Lead supervisor: Matt Rigby. Cities are going to be at the forefront of action on climate change. This project will use new in situ and space-based data to understand London’s CO2 emissions. Further details and how to apply. 

Tropical methane hotspots (CASE award with the National Centre for Earth Observation, NCEO). Lead supervisor: Anita Ganesan, Geographical Sciences. The tropics are thought to be the main drivers of change in the global methane concentrations. This project will use new data, particularly from space-based instruments, to quantity methane emissions from some of the most important, but under-studied parts of the world. Further details and how to apply.

 

Atmospheric SF6 concentrations simulated using the MOZART chemical transport model. Similar simulations will be performed for each major source of CF4.
Atmospheric SF6 concentrations simulated using the MOZART chemical transport model. Students will learn to run similar models and use this information to infer greenhouse gas emissions using in situ and space-based observations.
