Sustainable cooling of the London Underground network

Subsurface rail networks across the globe are becoming increasingly overheated because of climate change. More prolonged and extreme summers, combined with a rapidly increasing urban population, has led to devastating impacts on both public health and rail engineering. Read more

Tipping points in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica (OP2245)

Sea-level rise is one long-lasting consequence of global warming, affecting coastal communities worldwide. The Amundsen Sea is of particular importance as it is the region in Antarctica where the rate of ice loss is currently greatest. Read more

Isotopic fractionation of cadmium during continental weathering

The burial of organic matter in the ocean is a major component of the global carbon cycle, which impacts on global climate. Recent work has indicated that the isotopic composition of the trace element cadmium may be capable of recording variations in marine organic matter burial in the past. Read more

Impact of climate change and deglaciation on Glacier Lake Outburst Flood hazards in Lunana, Bhutan (OP2241)

The Himalayas are rapidly deglaciating due to climate change:this threatens the water security of ~1 billion people downstream and increases the risk of natural hazards, whilst rapid growth of downstream populations and infrastructure increases vulnerability (Immerzeel et al., 2020). Read more

Reconstructing climate and landscape change in drylands from sedimentary records (OP2216)

The basin of Shubayqa (Qa Shubayqa), today an ephemeral wetland in the eastern basalt desert of Jordan, provides a rare opportunity to reconstruct precipitation and landscape patterns throughout the Holocene in the wider Levant region east of the Dead Sea, because of its depth of sediment, a rather unique regional environmental archive.

Optimising flood risk management interventions in catchments and cities (OP2211)

Detailed flood models are used to assess increased future flood risk in cities and catchments, and to design flood attenuation features including green infrastructure (GI) or natural flood management (NFM). Read more

Solving the Leaky Barrier Conundrum: Nature Based Solutions to reduce flooding (OP2208)

Experimental work will include. (1) Hydraulic lab experiments conducted in controlled conditions to validate models for a variety of leaky barrier designs and materials in the new Novak Flume Research Facility; (2) In situ experiments. 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.

Enhancing Urban Flood Resilience with Innovative Digital Design Technologies (Advert Reference: RDF22/EE/MCE/FENG)

In England, 3.2 million households are located in areas at risks of urban flooding, with annual damages exceeding £300 million. Due to the extreme environmental conditions, unprecedented downpours across the country in recent years further increases the flooding events on urban road network (URN). Read more
