Our research

We aim to provide a deep and integrated understanding of our planet, including the physical environment, the organisms living there and how human activities impact on both.

91% of our research was described as "world leading" or "internationally excellent" in the most recent Research Excellence Framework.

Our study spans from the lab to the field and even into space. We have some of the most advanced facilities available, ensuring our researchers, students and collaborators can work together to make major contributions to our understanding of the world.

The breadth of our multidisciplinary activities helps us foster broad collaborations to provide societal benefit.
