Closes 22 Jan
Crystals with fascinating topologies often control the functional and mechanical properties of engineering materials. For instance, high temperature properties of Ni-based superalloys used for turbine blades are essentially determined by crystal arrays with dendritic topology. This makes the study of topological evolution in metals a critical part in...

A unique study system (the micro-crustacean Daphnia) is used to identify the mechanisms of adaptation to environmental change. These include epigenetics enabling phenotypic plasticity that may precede and inform the genetic fixation of adaptive traits. The environmental genomics model organism Daphnia produces diapausing embryos as part of its...

Anthropogenic climate change is expected to lead to substantial increase in extreme precipitation with impact on flooding. However, simulating precipitation and how it may change in the future is still a major challenge, and associated with large uncertainties. One of the main problems is the important role of convection in generating precipitation....

Neopterygians are a major vertebrate group of over 30,000 extant taxa comprising two radiations: holosteans, with fewer than 10 living species; and teleosts, with over 30,000 living species. The origin of neopterygians lies deep in geological time, over 250 million years ago. Despite an abundance of fossils, patterns of relationships outside of the...

Basaltic traps and related intrusions, globally, host a variety of resources including aggregates (Mitchel, 2015), minerals (Lusty, 2017), geothermal (Campbell et al., 2016), and groundwater (Seneger et al., 2015; Babar and Muley, 2018). A detailed understanding of lava emplacement and stratigraphy can provide robust models to aid related resource...

Eutrophication and climate change are two of the most pressing environmental issues, affecting up to 50% of aquatic ecosystems worldwide. Because of these environmental issues, about 40% of the world’s population live in water stressed areas. These areas are projected to become 50-65% of the earth surface by 2025. Human-driven environmental change...

Closes 21 Jan
The project will investigate the potential impact on cloud formation & urban pollution of self-organisation within aerosol particles. Atmospheric aerosols arise from human activity, and influence whether clouds form, how quickly molecules degrade and therefore how long they persist in the atmosphere. Fatty acids & esters are key components of...

Soil is fundamental to life and is vulnerable to losses in stored carbon (C) and productivity, particularly under intensive agriculture.1 For example, 133 billion tons of soil C has been lost due to agriculture, which alone represents between 10-20% of the total anthropogenic CO2 emission into air.1 Among others, loss in soil C reduces fertility and thus...

Earth is the only planet in our solar system that has distinctive oceanic and continental crust. Importantly, the growth of Earth’s first stable and preserved continental crust about 4 billion years ago modified the early mantle, hydrosphere and atmosphere and enabled terrestrial life to evolve. However, the mechanism responsible for early...
