Adaptation strategies against progressing anoxia in lakes

Oxygen is a fundamental water quality parameter; depletions in oxygen will affect fish habitat and increase anoxia promoting internal release of nutrients and heavy metals from lake sediment. Read more

Linking land management with fungal diversity, plant growth and nutrient uptake

About the project. The symbiosis between arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi and terrestrial plants is one of the most widespread and successful plant symbioses on Earth, one that includes the majority of food crops. Read more

Droplet Impacts with Functional Surfaces

Droplet interactions with functional surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes, from preventing virus laden droplets passing through face masks to reducing the build-up of ice on the surfaces of flying aircraft. Read more

Micro-Bio-Mechanical Modelling of root growth in soils

The extent and the way roots grow in the ground is known to have a fundamental impact on the growth of crop plants as well as on the resistance to lodging induced by storms. Read more

Deriving satellite-based soil moisture products over arid zones of the world.

Near-surface soil moisture content is a key variable in the functioning of the environment and climate system. Radar satellites map these globally and daily, providing inputs into weather forecasts and climate models. Read more

Use of basaltic rock dust to improve grassland and arable soil quality and grassland and crop performance

There is increasing interest in artificially enhancing calcium silicate rock weathering to sequester carbon dioxide from the atmosphere into carbonate minerals, with the Leverhulme Centre For Climate Change Mitigation, led by Prof David Beerlig FRS, providing a major programe of international reearch in this area. Read more

Rebuilding soil quality and crop performance in arable farming by herbal leys

Soil degradation is a major global threat to agricultural sustainability. Intensively cultivated arable soils that have been used to grow annual crops for decades often suffer from low organic matter content and weak structure and depleted populations of soil organisms. Read more

PhD in agricultural biology - forecasting management and economics of climate change

The world faces a major challenge to ensure the security of food supplies in the face of threats resulting from climate change, growing population and the development of resistance to pesticides. Read more
