We have a broad range of civil engineering water resource research. Our expertise ranges from climate modelling to developing practical responses to global change challenges. Our research has global consequences and our academics are leaders in their field.
Our School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences has a successful research group that focuses on water resources. Our mission is to foster, promote and conduct research of international quality. This means that we attract high quality graduates and researchers and train them to international standards.
Our research themes include: catchment hydrology and sustainable management; flood risk and coastal management; climate change impacts and adaptation
We supervise MPhil and PhD students in the following areas: flow and transport processes in surface and subsurface systems. This includes river mechanics and contaminant and sediment transport; planning and control of hydraulic networks; sustainable management of the water environment, including urban, rural agricultural and forestry environments; climate change impact assessment, including flood risk; environmental hazard assessment and mitigation, including landslide hazard; integrated surface and groundwater pollution controls; integrated assessment of coupled natural, technological and human systems.
