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

SCENARIO: Coatings of Anammox Bacteria for Nitrogen Removal from Contaminated Water (Ref. SC2022_31)

Nitrogen, in the forms of ammonium and nitrates ions, is a serious problem in the UK and elsewhere in water being discharged into the environment because it can harm aquatic ecology and detrimentally affect human health. Read more

SCENARIO: The effect of non-neutral winds on wind power aerodynamics (ref. SC2022_28)

According to the UK government, offshore wind is intended to deliver 40GW of by 2030. As our society becomes ever-more dependent on wind power, it is increasingly important to gain a deeper understanding and more accurate predictability of our wind power availability to guarantee a greener future.

Does the oxidation of organic material on atmospheric mineral aerosol change the solar radiative forcing of mineral aerosol?

The atmosphere of the Earth is an oxidizing medium and effectively acts as a low temperature, dilute fuel, combustion system, oxidizing complex compounds and returning them to the surface of the Earth via cloud water and dry deposition. Read more

SCENARIO: The aerodynamics of skyscrapers: tall building clusters and the urban environment (ref. SC2022_15)

By 2050 our cities will host 68% of the world’s population, compared to the current 54%, and 33% in the 1960s. This increase is often accomplished by the proliferation of tall buildings (TBs) that maximise the provision of housing and commerce using a limited street-level footprint. Read more

Seeing the Northern Lights at the equator? Predicting the next reversal of Earth’s magnetic field

The geomagnetic field is a fundamental part of planet Earth, existing for at least 3.5 billion years. Yet far from being a constant, the field is very dynamic, exhibiting slow fluctuations and wandering magnetic poles which occasionally fully reverse in polarity. Read more

The role of aerosol radiative effects in the global carbon budget

This exciting project will address the global carbon cycle budget imbalance term by using state-of-the-art global models and observations to comprehensively analyse the role of aerosol radiative effects on the land carbon sink. Read more

Evaluating climate impacts of land-use change over the Amazon

This project will improve predictions of the impacts of Amazon deforestation on local and regional climate. Deforestation in the Amazon causes large changes to the land surface, disrupting land-atmosphere interactions, warming the local climate and reducing regional rainfall (. Read more
