The School of GeoSciences is organised into the following Research Institutes:

  • Earth and Planetary Science: geology and geophysics relevant to resources, natural hazards, earth dynamics, and the environment.

  • Geography and the Lived Environment: understanding connections between people, society and the environment.

  • Global Change: understanding of past, present and future changes in the Earth system through measurements, theory, and computational modelling.

The School has a very diverse research portfolio, with researchers leading or contributing to a wide range of groups, centres and multi-institutional consortia.

  • A nondimensional relief framework: data 

    Grieve, Stuart; Mudd, Simon; Hurst, Martin; Milodowski, David
    Considering the relationship between erosion rate and the relief structure of a landscape within a nondimensional framework facilitates the comparison of landscapes undergoing forcing at a range of scales, and allows ...
  • CARDAMOM 2001-2010 global carbon Model-Data Fusion (MDF) analysis
