We have an exceptional range of instrumentation for the field and laboratory settings. Students can conduct activities such as analysis of environmental macronutrients and contaminants; micromorphological analysis of sediment fabrics; and channel and river dynamics using a variety of field modeling techniques in combination with laboratory flumes which create 3D simulations.
Students are introduced to field and laboratory work in their first and second year and taught the skills that will set them up for research that they can undertake for their dissertation projects in their third years.
Our research is built on strong collaborations that are national and international in scope. We also serve as a teaching platform for the next generation of ecosystem and earth system scientists.
