Hazards & Disaster Management Masters (MSc): Research areas

Current research in this subject

Many of our staff in the School of Geography, Geology and the Environment (GGE) are research active. This ensures that they are in touch with the latest subject developments and bring best practice to your studies.

Their broad research profile covers physical and human issues in hazard monitoring and management, including:

  • volcanology and volcano stability;
  • geophysical monitoring of volcanic and earthquake hazards and tsunami;
  • climate change and hurricane activity;
  • seasonal weather forecasting;
  • the impact of natural hazards on tourism and development;
  • flood hazards and water resource management;
  • use of GIS in landslide management; and
  • environmental radioactivity.

Research in the School of Geography, Geology and Environment

Research in the School of Geography, Geology and Environment at Kingston 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
  • people, place and environment – including the human, environmental and policy dynamics of rural systems.
