MPhil opportunity: Development of a water quality model for predicting indicators of Harmful Algal Blooms in coastal waters

The Master research study will be conducted as part of the Artificial Intelligence-powered Forecast for Harmful Algal Blooms (AIHABs) project funded under the EU Aquatic Pollutants Joint Transnational Call 2020 (. Read more

Smart monitoring technologies for water quality and sustainable supply management

Project Description. Private water supplies (PWS) are a concern to public health, both globally and locally, as they are vulnerable to breakdown and subsequent ingress from agricultural run-off and septic tank failures, leading to potential consumption of microbial (and other) contaminants.

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

The Release and Fate of Organofluoro ‘Forever’ Chemicals from Wastewater Treatment Works

Project Outline. This studentship will investigate the role of wastewater treatment works (WWTWs) as potential major sources of per/polyfluoroalkylated substances (PFAS) to rivers and coastal waters. Read more
