PhD opportunity combining ponds, small wetlands and carbon ecosystem function

THE ROLE OF SMALL AQUATIC SYSTEMS IN CARBON SEQUESTRATION – Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne

Summary

Small lakes and ponds are often omitted from global carbon budgets yet recent evidence has shown they represent a disproportionately active component of the freshwater carbon cycle that combined with their overall extent means they are likely to play a significant global role in the sequestration of organic carbon.

The project will continue our group’s work on characterising carbon mass ...

PhD opportunity – Tropical lake systems

Posted by:

We would like to draw your attention to a PhD opportunity at Loughborough University, in conjunction with the British Geological Survey.

Tropical lake ecosystems in the Anthropocene: quantifying recent human impacts on biogeochemical cycling and biodiversity

Tropical freshwater lakes are critical natural systems of global importance, yet are scientifically under researched. Their catchments provide vital ecosystem services to some of Earth’s fastest growing and most vulnerable human populations, but the provision of fundamental ecological and life-supporting services is under threat due to ...

WATER CHALLENGES

Posted by:

Public lecture Wednesday, July 8, 2015 | 7:00 pm

We live on a blue planet. Yet freshwater makes up only 3% of all water on earth, 2% of which is locked up in snow and ice, leaving just 1% for all of us to use. The availability of clean freshwater is vital for life, humans and nature alike. However, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) estimates that by 2025 two out of three people will live in water stressed areas. Water ...
