Institute of Applied Geoscience

We are researching fundamental geoscience with application and impact towards energy, environmental, industrial and infrastructural problems. We have a diverse research base, strong international profile and are highly multi-disciplinary. 

Our research groups

Applied Geophysics >
Basin Structure >
Ores and Mineralization >
Petrophysics and Geomechanics >
Planetary Exploration >
Rock Mechanics, Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology >
Sedimentology >

We collaborate globally with a range of organisations. Within the University of Leeds, we have strong links with Petroleum Leeds and Energy Leeds.
