Environmental Sciences Research

We are internationally recognised for our holistic and interdisciplinary approach to research, integrating physical, chemical, biological and social sciences to understand the Earth, its life and its people and the interactions between them. We undertake solution-orientated research aimed at tackling the environmental challenges of the 21st Century and securing a sustainable future for our world.

Research in the School addresses four overarching themes: Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate Sciences; Environmental Biology; Environmental Social Sciences; and Geosciences. We also host international centres of research excellence spanning these themes as well as state-of-the-art research facilities for exploring the environment .
