A major written literature review and project report on an approved topic relating to Antarctica and the Southern Ocean as appropriate, including the analysis of newly acquired or available data or information. Projects on offer, along with pre-requisites, will be made available at least a month prior to the PCAS/MASt course application deadline and students will be encouraged to contact a potential supervisor to assist in identifying a good match between supervisors' and supervisees' skillsets. The literature study will start at enrolment into the course. Project allocations will have to be approved by supervisors, and students will need to make contact with the project supervisor prior to the commencement of the course. Practical components, data analysis, and field experiments may be related to ANTA603 (Antarctic field work) in some cases, but, this will need to be discussed with the course coordinator and project supervisor at an early stage. All projects will be expandable into a MASt dissertation topic if agreed with the relevant project supervisor.


Subject to approval of the Head of Department.
