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

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

SCENARIO: Evaluating the ability of human communities and environmental systems to adapt and recover to Late Holocene climate change in the Peruvian Andes (ref. SC2022_14)

During the Late Holocene (last 4250 years), past climatic reconstructions from Peruvian archives (ice, marine, speleothems and lakes) have provided high-resolution records of precipitation and temperature changes, which reflect the varying influences of the Intertropical Convergence Zone, South American Summer Monsoon and El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO).

SCENARIO: Quantifying UK hydroclimatic variability on centennial timescales (ref. SC2022_26)

Water resources management systems have evolved to accommodate the range of hydrological variability experienced over decades – typically, the period from the 1960s/1970s, which is when most UK river flow records commenced. Read more

Beavers and climate change mitigation in freshwater systems

Overview. The reintroduction of beavers has been a conservation success story repeated across Europe and North America. By damming small rivers and creating pools, ponds and canals, beavers have restored lost ecosystem services such as. Read more
