Water Engineering: Complex Natural River Flow Modelling and Flood Analysis

  Research Group: Water Engineering and Natural Environment
The study on flooding, and identifying suitable ways to mitigate floods, have become a top priority for Government and the Environmental Agency, due to increasing flood frequency and intensity around the UK. Read more

The fate of microplastics in aquatic environments

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. Hone novel methods to track (real-time) and analyse microplastics. Design mesocosms to study the behaviour of microplastics in riverbed sediments. Read more

Using an interdisciplinary approach to elucidate pollution impacts and antimicrobial resistant pathogen dynamics across terrestrial, estuarine and marine environments

Project Description. The impact of environmental change on pathogen dynamics and AMR evolution from catchment to coast. Coastal environments are particularly vulnerable to chemical and microbial pollution that impact ecosystem services and human health. Read more

Stochastic modelling of subsurface water flow

Abstract. The subsurface water flow in natural formations with multiscale heterogeneities exhibit complex patterns. Our aim is to efficiently represent this motion by resorting to stochastic models for anomalous transport (e.g., continuous time random walks, Lévy flights, Lévy walks). Read more

Atmospheric transport and orographic rainfall of microplastics

Microplastics are transported in the natural environment by a wide range of processes and as a consequence are found in all environments, from the highest mountains to the deepest oceans, in urban environments and polar ice caps. Read more

Co-benefits and Trade-offs for Regenerative Agriculture

Project description. Nearly 70% of UK land area and 50% of European Union (EU) land is used for agriculture. These landscapes have been shaped by centuries of large-scale human impacts through traditional or intensive land-use systems. Read more

The use of exposure models to determine pharmaceutical usage data from measured environmental concentrations

In recent years occurrence of antibiotics in aquatic systems has attracted significant attention, particularly in rivers which receive sewage treatment effluent where they have been found to bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms, albeit in trace amounts. Read more
