    The geological record offers an invaluable window into the different ways earth's climate can operate. The most recent large-scale changes in earth's climate, prior to modern climate change, were the Pleistocene glacial cycles, which feature growth and disintegration of...

    GOTHAM represents an ambitious research programme to gain robust, relevant and transferable knowledge of past and present day patterns and trends of regional climate extremes and variability of vulnerable areas identified by the IPCC, including the tropics and high-lati...

  • project . 2016 - 2018
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/N013794/1
    Funder Contribution: 118,177 GBP
    Partners: PNNL, University of Salford, AU, LBL, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH Zürich, UBC, Stockholm University

    Predicting the impact of atmospheric aerosols, through their evolving size and chemical composition, relies on using mechanistic models that attempt to predict the partitioning of potentially millions of such compounds between the gas phase and condensed phase. Uncertai...

  • project . 2016 - 2021
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/N009754/1
    Funder Contribution: 342,225 GBP
    Partners: Met Office, UBC, University of Bergen, IMO, UNIS, UEA, University of Toronto, UCB, Woods Hole Oceanographic Inst

    The subpolar region of the North Atlantic is crucial for the global climate system. It is where coupled atmosphere-ocean processes, on a variety of spatial scales, require an integrated approach for their improved understanding and prediction. This region has enhanced '...

  • project . 2016 - 2019
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/M017540/2
    Funder Contribution: 284,801 GBP

    Turbidity currents are the volumetrically most import process for sediment transport on our planet. A single submarine flow can transport ten times the annual sediment flux from all of the world's rivers, and they form the largest sediment accumulations on Earth (submar...

  • project . 2016 - 2020

    Funder Contribution: 255,029 GBP
    Partners: UCSC, University of Glasgow, RU, SFU

    Natural mortality and environmental resources are intimately related to physiology, body size, fecundity, and lifespan, all of which play an instrumental role in population dynamics. Yet mortality and resource limitation are notoriously difficult to measure in wild popu...

  • project . 2016 - 2018
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/K00008X/2
    Funder Contribution: 42,744 GBP

    Submarine landslides can be far larger than terrestrial landslides, and many generate destructive tsunamis. The Storegga Slide offshore Norway covers an area larger than Scotland and contains enough sediment to cover all of Scotland to a depth of 80 m. This huge slide o...

    Transition zone seismic discontinuities (TZSDs), manifestations of mineral phase transitions or/and compositional changes between the upper mantle and the lower mantle, hold the key to resolve the mystery of mass and heat transport in the Earth's mantle and the long-ter...
