    Partners: Newcastle University, AXYS, Liquid Robotics

    Variations in sea level have a great environmental impact. They modulate coastal deposition, erosion and morphology, regulate heat and salt fluxes in estuaries, bays and ground waters, and control the dynamics of coastal ecosystems. Sea level variability has importance ...

    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...

    Funder Contribution: 96,770 GBP
    Partners: LSE, University of Waterloo (Canada), Cornell University

    The proposed research contributes to fundamental topics in Combinatorial Optimisation, aiming to devise strongly polynomial algorithms for new classes of linear and nonlinear optimisation problems. The notion of polynomial-time complexity, introduced in the 1970s, is a ...

    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/M013693/1
    Funder Contribution: 272,801 GBP
    Partners: LANL, SFU, ECMWF, University of Reading, Met Office

    This project is about using moving meshes - r-adaptivity - to improve the predictive power of atmospheric flow simulations, which are used in the fields of numerical weather prediction and climate modelling. When the atmosphere is simulated on a computer, this is done b...

    Funder Contribution: 766,686 GBP
    Partners: WU, University of Salford, University of Guelph

    Soils provide many functions for humans, including the storage of carbon and nutrient cycling, which are crucial for the production of food and mitigation of climate change. However, there is much concern that soils, and the functions that they provide, are being threat...

    Funder Contribution: 403,977 GBP
    Partners: University of Warwick, University of Montreal

    The global demand for smaller and more energy efficient devices has been sustained by a steady decrease in the scale on which silicon microelectronics can be manufactured, from 65nm processes in the mid 2000s to 14nm in the very latest Intel processors. To continue this...

    Concerns are growing about how much melting occurs on the surface of the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS), and how much this melting will contribute to sea level rise (1). It seems that the amount of melting is accelerating and that the impact on sea level rise is over 1 mm e...
