Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil

Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation. Read more

PhD position in the Restoration of Soil Microbial and Invertebrate Biodiversity in Urban Greenspaces

Exposure to soil biodiversity in urban greenspaces can promote human and wildlife health by impacting their microbiomes. However, the development of soil biodiversity following aboveground restoration is poorly understood, as are the pathways through which people are exposed to this biodiversity. Read more

Inga agroforestry to enhance soil regeneration and carbon sequestration in degraded tropical soils.

Extensive tracts of land in the tropics have already been cleared of forest, used first to grow crops and then as pasture. The removal of the tropical forest severely diminishes the capacity of the ecosystem to retain nutrients and carbon in the soil. Read more

Quantifying carbon content in European agricultural land

Farming practices and interventions that sequester and store carbon in agricultural soils can significantly contribute to climate change mitigation, as well as support farmer’s adaptation to increasing frequency of extreme events, droughts and floods. Read more

Forests in a changing environment: A study of nitrogen cycle feedbacks

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. Novel research to describe forest nitrogen cycle dynamics in response to global change. Access to one of the most extensively characterised ancient woodlands in the UK, facilitating opportunities for wider collaboration in forest ecology research. 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

Project at Cranfield University: Carbon sequestration in agricultural soils through silicate weathering

One of the most promising ‘geo-engineering’ methods to mitigate climate change is to capture CO. 2. from the air and react it with silicate rocks to form carbonate rocks, so permanently sequestering the CO. Read more

Developing methods to quantify the potential for greenhouse gas removal using bioenergy - carbon capture and storage to speed up the establishment and uptake of perennial Bio-energy crops.

Crop yield and soil carbon turnover models are parameterized by using data from carefully controlled and measured field and lab experiments and when used spatially in predictive mode are driven by existing spatial data sets of weather, climate, soil types and land use at various scales. Read more
