The world is facing challenges of environmental change and natural hazards. These changes affect the whole of society and there is a growing need to understand them to provide advice and practical solutions to manage and mitigate their impact.

We tackle these challenges by bringing together expertise across a wide range of topics, covering earth sciences, environmental science, sustainability, geography and transport planning to deliver impact-orientated research.

Our research informs student education opportunities, which means you'll learn about the latest developments from world-leading researchers and gain the wide-ranging skills required to help address pressing environmental and societal issues.
