Our research aims to understand and predict the behaviour of Earth surface systems and their response to human perturbation.
We bring together Earth, chemical and biological scientists in endeavours to understand the workings of the interacting geosphere-hydrosphere-biosphere-atmosphere systems at a molecular scale.
Our cross-disciplinary research focuses on areas including geological disposal, remediation, environment and health, climate change and nanotechnology.
Our facilities rival those of leading schools across the world, and help with research into all aspects of Earth and environmental sciences.
Our work makes a positive difference to many environmental challenges, including climate change and energy.
