School of Geography: Geosciences Research Theme

river flowing past rocks

This theme is leading research in earth and environmental systems over a range of spatial and temporal scales.

We investigate patterns and processes within the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere to make inferences about past, present and future change.

We are pioneering the latest technologies for geoscience data collection, analysis and knowledge transfer. Supported by state-of-the-art laboratories and information systems, we engage in fundamental and applied research with a strong focus on resource and environmental management, biodiversity, risk mitigation and ecosystem restoration.
