Developing methods to quantify the potential for greenhouse gas removal using bioenergy - carbon capture and storage to speed up the establishment and uptake of perennial Bio-energy crops.

Background. Crop yield and soil carbon turnover models are parameterized by using data from carefully controlled and measured field and lab experiments and when used spatially in predictive mode are driven by existing spatial data sets of weather, climate, soil types and land use at various scales.

The Anthropocene geochemical footprint in the Great Barrier Reef

Project Highlights. Study a set of unique tropical coral cores covering up to 430 years of ocean climate history from Australia’s iconic Great Barrier Reef to reveal the onset of the Anthropocene in the tropical Pacific Ocean. Read more

Creating just, healthy cities: challenging inequalities in health deprivation from air pollution in minority communities

This project aims to investigate emerging issues around air pollution and wide spread disease (focusing on COVID-19[1]) and inequalities in society, namely, socioeconomic status, ethnicity and access to health/welfare support. Read more

Aroma chemicals and their impact on indoor air quality

This project will deploy experimental, modelling and measurement expertise to enhance our knowledge of reactive aroma chemicals (AC) and minimise impacts on indoor air pollution. Read more

Probing the role of chemical composition on the toxicity of atmospheric particles

Over the last decade our understanding of the impact of air pollution on both short- and long-term population health has advanced considerably and there is now a better understanding of the impacts of air pollution beyond the lungs. Read more

Reducing the persistent uncertainty in how aerosols affect climate change

Aerosols from air pollution are the cause of the largest uncertainty in historical climate change. Changes in historical temperature are caused by a combination of greenhouse gas warming and aerosol-induced cooling. Read more

Characterisation of 3D liver models for discovery toxicology and pathology

Human cells endure a lifetime of exposure to endogenous and exogenous toxicants. For example, the gastrointestinal tract, including the liver, is exposed to a vast array of dietary metabolites, drugs, and other xenobiotics, as well as commensal and pathogenic organisms. Read more

Deciphering the molecular basis of cardiac arrhythmias induced by pollutant gases

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Epidemiological data reports that the incidence of cardiac arrhythmias is more prevalent in polluted areas, and a multitude of clinical reports show that exposure to air pollutants increases the occurrence of ST elevation myocardial infarction and cardiac arrhythmias. Read more

Modelling the behaviour of legacy radioactive particles in the marine environment at Dounreay

Dounreay Site Restoration Limited (DSRL) is funding research through the University of the Highlands and Islands for a critical PhD project to model the behaviour of legacy radioactive particles in the marine environment at Dounreay. Read more
