Research Activity

The Water Sciences group undertakes pure and applied research to help improve our understanding of processes that control the movement, availability and quality of water, and the modelling of their influence on other environmental systems.

We work in a broad range of environments: from headwater streams, through agricultural soils, tropical rainforests, deep groundwater, lakes, rivers and wetlands, to the coastal waters.

Through the development of scientific tools and techniques within the group, we are able to solve problems related to water the management of water, coastal and aquatic environments in the UK and overseas.

We are committed to providing high-quality training for students and industry, an example of which is our accredited postgraduate training in flood, coastal risk and water management with industry partner JBA.

Our approach to tackling our research problems is often highly interdisciplinary, working alongside aquatic chemists and ecologists, plant and soil scientists, biogeochemists, social scientists, members of the worldwide water industry and policymakers. Our research findings are often a result of combined laboratory experimentation, field observations and modelling.

We have extensive laboratory and field facilities and access to a wide range of UK and overseas research observatories.
