QUADRAT DTP: Development of a land surface temperature index glacio-hydrological model

The Hindu Kush-Himalaya (HKH) mountains contain considerable freshwater reservoirs in the form of snow, glaciers, lakes, permafrost and wetlands supporting a population of ⁓1.3 billion [1]. Read more

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: 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

QUADRAT DTP: Understanding social values on low carbon sub-surface technologies in Scotland and Northern Ireland

The Energy Transition to a Net Zero is a societal objective that influences industry, markets, institutions and civil society. In June 2019, the UK parliament passed legislation requiring the government to reduce the UK’s net emissions of greenhouse gases by 100% relative to 1990 levels by 2050 (CCC 2019). 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

QUADRAT DTP: Depositional control on deep marine sediment facies and microplastic accumulation, and their influence on the benthic organisms

This multidisciplinary study aims to assess how different geological and oceanographic processes control the deposition of sediment and microplastics, and their control or influence on the benthic organisms living within deep marine sediments. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: The future of irrigated agriculture in Europe's mountainous regions; exploring trade-offs and synergies for climate adaptation

This project will address the need for sustainable agricultural water management strategies under climate change. It will explore the trade-offs between (changes in) water availability, crop water demand, irrigation practices, and other socio-economic factors. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: An integrated multi-proxy approach to the late Pleistocene landscapes and environments of Ireland and Scotland, and the potentials for human and faunal recolonizations at the end of the Last Ice Age

Over the last decade, archaeological research in both Scotland and Ireland has begun to overturn the notion that these regions at the extreme edge of north-west Europe were uninhabited (and uninhabitable) by humans – and numerous large mammalian species – in the Late Pleistocene. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Environment, Diet and Oral Health in Early Historic Ireland and Scotland

The environment, particularly climate, are at times a catalyst for human resilience and adaptation. Notwithstanding, environmental and climatic variability can have catastrophic effects on human health. Read more

Adaptations in sentence production in interactions with native and non-native speakers

This project investigates how speakers adapt to conversational partners in sentence production. Psycholinguistic theories assume that speakers adapt implicitly to the linguistic input they receive on a daily basis. Read more

Consequences of predictive language processing for learning and memory

Language arrives at a rate of 150-300 words per minute. a rapid input stream that needs to be decoded at high speed. There is now an emerging consensus that the input is to some extent predictable, and that the brain generates predictions about likely upcoming input, which may provide a head start on processing.
