Peter Hopcroft


Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

I am keen to hear from prospective PhD students on all topics related to Earth System and climate modelling. I am particularly interested in simulating the Green Sahara and other aspects of palaeo-monsoon variations; the palaeo mineral dust cycle, particularly related to abrupt climate dust and climate events during the last glacial period and the methane cycle. Projects that look at links between model performance for the past and the future would also be encouraged. I am happy to consider distance learning candidates where appropriate.
