We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The School of Earth and Environment provides a stimulating learning experience for students of earth, environmental science and environmental management. Our research was rated as grade 5 in the HEFCE Research Assessment Exercise.
We have over 80 academic staff in the school covering a wide variety of research which is undertaken by four institutes within the School.
Sustainability Research Institute (SRI) is dedicated to the development and application of interdisciplinary environmental analysis in realisation of the principles of sustainable development:
Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science (ICAS) is dedicated to understanding the physical and chemical processes that govern the behaviour of Earth's atmosphere. Atmospheric processes are investigated using numerical models and field and laboratory experiments from the Earth's surface to the stratosphere.
Institute of Geophysics and Tectonics (IGT) is dedicated to understanding the structure and evolution of the Earth and neighbouring planets. Detection and measurement of resources in the crustal layer and understanding of geological hazard; measurement of gravity, magnetism, seismic waves and electrical properties, theoretical and computer modelling, and surface structural mapping.
Institute of Earth Surface Science Institute (ESSI) researches the physical, biological and geochemical processes to understand controls on the modern environment (both land and sea) and how man is affecting that system.
