Environmental Management, Environmental Management (Energy) or Environmental Management (Water Resources) Masters (MSc): Research areas

Current research in this subject

Environmental management

  • Research associated with solid waste management.
  • Investigations into effects of land-use change on decline in biodiversity and species extinctions.
  • Research associated with biogeochemical cycling of trace elements and nutrients in terrestrial and aquatic environments.
  • Investigations into understanding the underlying processes of metal/nutrient transfer between soil and plants; investigations into the long-term behaviour of metals in soils.

Water resources

  • Investigations into understanding the underlying processes of metal/nutrient transfer between soil and water.
  • Research into the long-term behaviour of land use impacts on diffused water pollution.
  • Investigations into sustainable water uses in developing countries (eg South Africa).
  • Research on desalinisation in developing-world context.

Energy

  • Research on globally relevant topics associated with conventional energies, renewable energies and sustainable energies.

Research in the Centre for Earth and Environmental Science Research (CEESR)

Research forms part of the Centre for Earth and Environmental Science Research (CEESR). Research falls into three different groups:

  • geodynamics and crustal processes – including tectonics, basin evolution and applications of palaeomagnetism to global geodynamics;
  • environmental change – including remote sensing of land cover change in tropical and temperate ecosystems and human impacts on watercourses and soils in Britain; and
  • agriculture, environment and people – including the human, environmental and policy dynamics of rural systems.

Events and lectures

  • Students can attend bi-weekly Departmental Seminar Series (ie CEESR).
  • Students are invited to the annual CEESR Seminar.
