QUADRAT DTP: Biogeochemical cycling in paddy soils: Impact of climate-smart water management

BACKGROUND. Rice is a dominant human food but also the most water-demanding staple crop globally. This high-water use is due to its cultivation; in flooded field it requires 2-3 times more water than other arable crops. Read more

Water-table management in lowland agricultural peatlands for climate change mitigation

Project overview. Peatlands are carbon-rich wetlands that occupy just three per cent of the world’s land surface area (12% in the UK) but store a similar amount of carbon to all terrestrial vegetation, as well as supporting unique biodiversity. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: The future of irrigated agriculture in Europe's mountainous regions; exploring trade-offs and synergies for climate adaptation

This project will address the need for sustainable agricultural water management strategies under climate change. It will explore the trade-offs between (changes in) water availability, crop water demand, irrigation practices, and other socio-economic factors. Read more

Stream synchrony: understanding the synchrony of nutrients, pollution, and water in river ecosystems

Rivers convey and transform the water, nutrients and pollutants they receive from the landscape. High concentrations of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus may act as pollutants, damaging freshwater and estuary ecosystems through processes such as eutrophication. Read more

Past cultural adaptation to abrupt Holocene climate change in the Peruvian Andes

The relatively stable climate of the Holocene period has been interspersed with abrupt climate events (ACEs) – periods often lasting as little as 100 years with significant reduction in temperature. Read more

Using sensors, satellites and artificial intelligence to improve catchment-scale modelling and nowcasting of microbial risks to water quality

Background. Scotland’s rivers, lakes and public bathing waters provide substantial benefits to local economies and the broader wellbeing of its citizens, but these benefits can be significantly impaired where episodes of poor microbial water quality impose restrictions on recreational use of water bodies.
