  • project . 2014 - 2015
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/M005879/1
    Funder Contribution: 51,988 GBP
    Partners: NRCan, IFM GEOMAR, University of Liverpool, UNIVERSIDAD DE CHILE, Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP)

    The Peru-Chile subduction zone hosts many large earthquakes. A M8.8 earthquake occurred in northern Chile in 1877, and since then, no major event had re-ruptured the area prior to April 2014. The 500 km-long zone has therefore become known as the "North Chile seism...

  • project . 2011 - 2015
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/H021868/1
    Funder Contribution: 569,600 GBP
    Partners: Academy of Science of the Czech Republic, UWO, UW, Durham University, Opole University

    The Cretaceous, 146-66 million years ago, experienced high levels of atmospheric CO2, and the warmest climates and highest global sea-levels in the last 300 Ma. On several occasions, the oceans became abruptly depleted in oxygen, so-called oceanic anoxic events (OAEs), ...

  • project . 2011 - 2015
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/I006672/1
    Funder Contribution: 807,791 GBP
    Partners: University of Reading, Met Office, University of Michigan–Flint, EnviroSim (Canada), CSIRO

    PAGODA will focus on the global dimensions of changes in the water cycle in the atmosphere, land, and oceans. The overarching aim is to increase confidence in projections of the changing water cycle on global-to-regional scales through a process-based detection, attribu...

  • project . 2011 - 2015
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/I005978/2
    Funder Contribution: 278,079 GBP
    Partners: University of London, AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY, University of St Andrews, Nanjing Institute of Geology & Palaeonto, University of Exeter, McGill University, NERC British Geological Survey, University of Birmingham

    The Earth is a truly remarkable planet. In addition to the physical processes driving plate tectonics, climate and ocean-atmospheric exchange, it supports an extraordinary diversity of living organisms, from microbes to mammals and everything in between. Such wasn't alw...

  • project . 2011 - 2015
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/H01988X/1
    Funder Contribution: 392,706 GBP
    Partners: OSU, UD, NOC, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, SAMS, DFO, University of Oxford, NPS

    The Canadian Arctic Archipelago (defined here to include Nares Strait which borders Greenland) is a key gateway that links the Arctic Ocean to the Atlantic. Changes in the flux of freshened seawater and ice through its channels have the potential to significantly affect...

  • project . 2012 - 2015
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/J00782X/1
    Funder Contribution: 197,631 GBP
    Partners: MUN, GSC, Durham University

    It is widely accepted that the Earth's climate is warming and that glaciers are losing mass and increasing sea level. Small glaciers are particularly susceptible but only represent a fraction of the Earth's freshwater stored as ice. In contrast, the huge ice sheets in G...

  • project . 2009 - 2015
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/F01466X/1
    Funder Contribution: 456,788 GBP
    Partners: OSU, University of Ottawa, Newcastle University

    This project addresses the current uncertainty in the present-day contribution of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet to global sea level rise. These estimates are primarily derived from space geodetic (altimetry or time-variable gravity) measurements, with time-variable gravi...

  • project . 2013 - 2015
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/K005421/1
    Funder Contribution: 337,728 GBP
    Partners: Liquid Robotics, AXYS, NOC

    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 ...

  • project . 2011 - 2015
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/I009906/1
    Funder Contribution: 625,765 GBP
    Partners: Willis Limited, AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY, University of Ottawa, UKCIP, EA, University of Southampton

    The vulnerability of extensive near-coastal habitation, infrastructure, and trade makes global sea-level rise a major global concern for society. The UK coastline, for example, has ~£150 billion of assets at risk from coastal flooding, of which with £75 bill...

  • project . 2010 - 2015
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/H017348/1

    Partners: CEREGE, Alfred Wegener Inst for Polar & Marine R, BCCR, CAU, University of Liège, Dalhousie University, Bigelow Lab for Ocean Sciences, Marine Research Institution, Inst for Baltic Sea Research Warnemunde, Institute for Oceanography Kiel...

    The burning of fossil fuels is releasing vast quantities of extra carbon dioxide to the Earth's atmosphere. Much of this stays in the atmosphere, raising CO2 levels, but much also leaves the atmosphere after a time, either to become sequestered in trees and plants, or e...
