Our group works to integrate computational, field and theoretical approaches to quantify and understand planetary surface evolution across scales.
Major challenges we research:
Our methods exploit and integrate new technology and approaches to advance understanding of fundamental science questions.
Our impacts include the wide adoption of topographic analysis software by industry and government departments and delivery of strategic management for ecosystem service provision (e.g. flood risk reduction, carbon storage, biodiversity increases).
Our stakeholders and co-creators include Rewilding Britain, Knepp Wildland, Environment Agency, Arup.
Our associated staff are:
Lisa Belyea – peatlands, ecohydrology, carbon cycle, greenhouse gases, ecosystem resilience
Stuart Grieve – geomorphology, sediment transport, remote sensing, planetary science, LiDAR, GIS, computational geoscience
Gemma Harvey – biogeomorphology, landscape rewilding and restoration, ecosystem engineers, invasive species.
Alex Henshaw – geomorphology, fluvial systems, remote sensing, nature-based solutions
Geraldene Wharton – hydrogeomorphology, ecohydrology, modelling water-sediment-vegetation dynamics in rivers.
James Bradley – elemental cycles, organic carbon burial and remineralization, marine sediments.
