A fully funded PhD position is available to carry out experimental studies
on the release of atmospheric nitrogen bearing trace gases from polar snow.
The focus will be on nitrous acid gas (HONO), a particularly reactive
nitrogen species, which has been observed previously at surprisingly high
levels in air above snow, suggesting a large snowpack source may be
present. The aim of this project is to quantify the HONO snow source in the
lab using natural snow samples as well as at the BAS Halley research
station in coastal Antarctica (75ºS). Antarctic field work is intended but
subject to the inherent logistical or weather related
uncertainties. This project is offered as a CASE award, as a collaboration
between the University of Birmingham (Dr Bill Bloss) and the British
Antarctic Survey in Cambridge (Dr Markus Frey). The student will be
registered at Birmingham, but will spend substantial time at BAS in
Cambridge for instrument and fieldwork training.
