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

Climate, water and society in arid regions: from ancient civilizations to the Anthropocene

The largest region of arid climate stretches from North Africa, across the Middle East and into Central Asia. In these regions, water availability is an important restriction and yet this is where the first cities, first kingdoms and first empires rose and fell. Read more

Environmental solutions for water bioremediation and waste management

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. For further details. Read more

ACCE DTP fully funded studentship - Earthworms as ploughs and bioreactors: optimising management for sustainable soils

Earthworms are ecosystem engineers; burrowing significantly impacts soil causing substantial particle movement, influencing soil physical properties and affecting many soil ecosystem services including food production, water retention and carbon storage. 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

Quantification of Carbon fluxes from organic and organo-mineral soils

Quantification of Carbon fluxes from organic and organo-mineral soils. Background.  Irish grasslands are a significant carbon (C) store, with grasslands under mineral and organic (histosol) soils containing approximately 1.5 billion tonnes of carbon. Read more

Soil carbon for soil performance

With increasing public and private commitment to net zero emissions there is increasing interest in the role of agriculture to contribute to these goals through carbon sequestration. Read more
