Understanding water quality across the United Kingdom for a clean water future

Project Background  . Water quality in the United Kingdom is an extremely pressing concern. Reports of raw sewage being dumped into the sea, fatbergs in urban rivers, and weeds filling canals suggest all is not well. Read more

OP2340 New biopolymer-based tools for mapping environmental water pollution with toxic metal ions

NERC ONE Planet DTP. Industrialisation has caused high anthropogenic stress, due to the release of toxic metal ions (e.g. arsenic, lead, and chromium) into water and soil, which has a lethal effect on humans and the ecosystem. Read more

OP2366 How do we manage too wet and too dry? Will increased drought and drier land combined with higher rainfall intensities change flood and water quality hazards?

NERC ONE Planet DTP. Against a backdrop of increasing hydroclimatic variability with global warming, drought conditions are projected to become more common in summer months alongside increases in short-duration intense rainfall events that commonly cause flash-flooding and an extension of the convective season.

Hydro-Nation Scotland’s resilience– investigating systemic impacts of land-use decisions on water resources

This project aims to develop policy relevant understanding of the economic, social and environmental drivers of competing land uses, current trajectories and their potential impacts on catchment-level water availability and quality across Scotland. Read more

E4 DTP Connecting soils and streams: understanding the impact of peatland restoration on catchment scale biogeochemistry

Project background. Drainage of peatlands diminishes carbon storage, biodiversity and water quality, and there is now a concerted effort to restore peatlands to re-establish these lost ecosystem services. Read more
