PhD Scholarship – Nitrogen cycling in vegetated coastal systems

N2O is a potent greenhouse gas with marine sources estimated to contribute about 30% of natural global load. However, the contribution from the coastal zone, in particular seagrass and mangrove systems, is poorly constrained. High rates of nitrification and denitrification occur in tropical seagrass and mangrove sediments driven by heterotrophic respiration (see Eyre et al., 2011. Biogeochemistry 102, 111-133).

PhD student position “Two million year history of the Indian Monsoon”

Job Description:

The project will use the unique long sediment cores obtained by the IODP vessel JOIDES Resolution in the Andaman Sea to examine the past variability of Indian Monsoon precipitation on the Indian sub-continent and directly over the ocean. A multi-proxy approach including foraminifera shell geochemistry (trace element/Ca ratios, radiogenic (Nd) and stable O and C isotopes by mass spectrometry), bulk sediment chemistry from XRF scanning and clay mineralogy will be employed. These proxies will reveal changes in continental weathering, runoff and direct precipitation on orbital timescales for the last 2 million years filling a fundamental gap in our understanding of the Indian Monsoon in the past.
