Geography, Geology and the Environment
The Research Centre for Geography, Geology and the Environment offers a vibrant, multidisciplinary environment for research in Human and Physical Geography, Geoscience, Environmental Science and Sustainability.
The Centre brings together about 35 academics and contract research staff, a number of established research groups and postgraduate students, working within, and across, three dedicated research themes.
Sustainability Science is at the core of our research agendas in Earth Systems, Responsibility and Resilience, and Sustainable Energy and Environments.
Research by the Centre is supported by a range of modern analytical facilities for both field and laboratory-based research, and has attracted funding from the UK and European Research Councils, charities, industry, as well as local and regional agencies and organisations.
In the UK-wide Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), 98% of our research in ‘Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences’ and ‘Social Work and Social Policy’ was rated as internationally recognised, with 57% and 74%, respectively, achieving the top two grades (3* or 4*), denoting internationally excellent.
