Glacier calving-observations and modelling

Glacier calving is the process of ice loss through the breaking of ice from the edge of a glacier. Ice-flow models describe calving in a number of different ways, and there is still no consensus on the best approach. Read more

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

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

Dining out in the Anthropocene: the impact non-native Himalayan Balsam on bee Microbiome, health and pollinator ecosystems

Honeybees (Apis mellifera) play a vital role in pollination of crops and wildflowers. They are “generalists” who visit a wide range of flowers, basing their choice on quality of reward (nectar, pollen) and of quantity of flowers available. 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

A Data-Driven Simulation Approach for Considering Climate Change Impacts in Infrastructure Asset Management (IAM) (OP2242)

Climate change can significantly impact deterioration and useful life of Infrastructure Assets (IA). The repercussions of these impacts need to be considered for IAM to maintain the resiliency of the critical infrastructure to climate change. Read more
