Geography, Geology and the Environment

earth science The Research Centre for Geography, Geology and the Environment offers a vibrant, interdisciplinary environment for research in human and physical geography, geoscience, environmental science and sustainability. The Centre brings together about 40 academic staff, a number of established research groups and postgraduate students, working within, and in some cases across, four dedicated research themes.

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.
