Our overarching aim is to improve the scientific understanding of past, present and future changes in the Earth system through measurements, theory and computational modelling.
Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate of the Anthropocene
The Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate of the Anthropocene research group investigates key processes and interactions in the atmosphere and the drivers of present-day and future changes in climate and composition.
The Biosphere research group integrates all living beings and their relationships and we aim to understand and quantify nature’s contribution to human well-being and how this could be affected by climate change.
The Cryosphere research group combines field, satellite remote sensing, geophysical, geochronological and numerical modelling techniques to investigate how the cryosphere will be affected by predicted climate change, and to inform possible consequences on our society with respect to sea-level rise and water resources.
Land Surface Dynamics
The Land Surface Dynamics group is focused on determining the Earth surface response to climatic and tectonic forcing in terms of erosional and sedimentary fluxes and the consequent geomorphology of the continents.
Oceans and Past Climate
The Oceans and Past Climate research group consists of researchers from a diverse range of backgrounds (oceanography, biology, geochemistry, geology), who share an interest in developing an understanding of the oceans and their role in modulating and driving global environmental variability and change.
