The Environment

Science for the responsible management of our environment is the unifying theme for environment-focused research in the School.

Our interdisciplinary research seeks to understand the complex interactions between human activity and our physical environment, use the recent and the geological record to inform our understanding of change on longer time-scales, and develop innovative methods to use new technologies to minimise our impact on the planet.

Our environment-focused research cuts across our research groups and is undertaken in collaboration with researchers from across the University and the global academic and industry communities. Projects are funded by a variety of external sources including UK Research Councils, major charities, government departments, the European Union, international trusts and foundations, and industry.
