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

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.

Smart Rivers: Using sensor networks to understand carbon cycling in regulated rivers

Project outline. Rivers play a fundamental role in transporting terrestrial carbon into the world’s oceans where it is sequestered, thereby reducing the release of greenhouse gases (GHG; e.g. 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

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.
