Fully-funded NERC industrial CASE PhD studentship at the
University of Edinburgh starting September 2014 |
CASE partner: UK Met Office, Hadley Centre
“Impacts of climate change and emissions on atmospheric composition and on air pollution”
Ruth Doherty and Mat Heal (Schools of Geosciences and
Chemistry, University of Edinburgh), Fiona O’ Connor and Gerd
Folberth (Met Office, Hadley Centre), Graham Mann (University
aim of this project is to use the UK Chemistry and Aerosol
(UKCA) community model under present-day and future to compare
the impacts of climate and emission change on atmospheric
composition, and determine the key drivers of change. Key
questions may include: what is the contribution of local
emissions versus regionally-transported pollution to air
constituents of PM are most dominant during air pollution
episodes now and in the future?
Which key transport and chemistry
processes associated with regional climate change drive changes
in atmospheric composition and air quality exceedances?
CASE partner: The student will
have the opportunity to spend time at the UK Met Office during
the project. The Met Office also provides extra funding
additional to the NERC student stipend.
