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

QUADRAT DTP: Enhancing low-cost hydrogeological monitoring with ambient seismic noise

A 20-30% increase in global demand of water is expected by 2050 and therefore a comprehensive understanding of groundwater dynamics is essential to achieve and manage a sustained water supply. Read more

NERC Panorama DTP - Remote sensing soil processes and health for improved Carbon sequestration (ReSSPHICS)

Overview. AIM. Soils are a key component of terrestrial ecosystems and provide multiple ecosystem services to humans, including the provision of food from agriculture. Soil organic carbon (SOC) loss due to intensive agricultural practices, and climate change is a major threat to global food security.

QUADRAT DTP: Supraglacial ponding in the Indian Himalaya: a population-scale spatiotemporal analysis

Runoff from the Himalayan glaciers serves as a vital freshwater resource for one of the most populated regions globally. Majority of these glaciers are heavily debris-covered and the debris-covered parts display associated supraglacial ponds (SGPs) whose hydrological buffering roles remain unconstrained1. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: How much of the wildfire record are we seeing in the fossil record?

One of the consequences of recent climate change and human disturbance is that grassland, heath, peatland and forest ecosystems are now becoming more fire prone due to higher summer temperatures and reduced precipitation which creates a water deficit. Read more

Controlling the microbial generation of nitrous oxide in wastewater treatment; a pathway to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

The wastewater treatment (WWT) process is arguably the most important biotechnological application in the modern world. Each day, large volumes of influent wastewater are processed in municipal WWT plants so that safe effluent is returned to the water cycle. Read more

Microbial and biogeochemical processes through the ocean-sediment continuum

  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
The interface between the ocean and subseafloor sediments is a critical boundary that influences life in the deep biosphere, the transport and transformation of organic carbon and nutrients, and the global carbon cycle. Read more

NERC-funded PhD studentships: Departments of Earth Science and Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Imperial College London’

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and several business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to address some of the toughest challenges of our time.

Greenness versus greyness: greenspaces in and around cities for hazard mitigation and resilience - SENSE CDT

The overarching aim of this proposal is to increase our resilience to geo- and climatic hazards by assessing the current state and identifying the future potential of greenspaces in and around cities in the Global South to better inform future urban expansion. Read more
