Seismic monitoring and surveillance of offshore CO2 storage operations, Edinburgh Time-Lapse Project (ETLP)

  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
CO2 underground storage is an acknowledged way of offsetting the global emissions of greenhouse gases. It is a safe, mature technology and is ready for broad implementation. Read more

Reconciling Geomechanics and Frequently Recorded 4D Seismic Data, Edinburgh Time-Lapse Project (ETLP)

  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
Hydrocarbon fields are now challenging to produce, and the time for easy extraction is gone. More complete and accurate representations of the field with realistic well-founded models are required to make decisions concerning field management and development. Read more

Elucidating the Environmental Impact of Nanoplastics (NP) through a Mechanistic Understanding of NP-induced Cell Membrane Damage

Plastic pollution is one of the main environmental problems of our time. Due to mismanagement or inadequate recycling practices, up to 300 million tons of plastic end up annually in landfills or are discharged into ecosystems, posing potential threats to aquatic and terrestrial life. Read more

Assessing High Latitude Atmosphere-Ionophere Coupling: Ionospheric impacts of SSWs at high latitudes

Sudden Stratospheric Warmings (SSWs) are severe climatic events in the upper atmosphere, where the accumulated effect of planetary wave breaking results in a weakening of the stratospheric polar vortex, sometimes resulting in a reversal of the stratospheric zonal wind. Read more

Polarised neutron spectroscopy of energy materials

Scientific aims. Neutron spectroscopy can provide deep insight into the physics underpinning technologically relevant phenomena. The spin, energies and wavelengths of thermal neutrons make them ideal for the study of heat carrying quasiparticles, diffusing ions and spin waves. Read more

Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures. 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

Microbial activity on glaciers and ice sheets: an integrated modelling and empirical approach.

  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
Glaciers and ice sheets are important microbe-dominated ecosystems, that are undergoing rapid changes due to climate change. Supraglacial (glacier surface) ecosystems contain organisms from all three domains of life, which drive carbon and nutrient cycling, and cause ice darkening, thus enhancing ice mass loss. Read more
