Applied Geosciences Research and Enterprise Group

Organization profile

Profile Information

The Applied Geosciences Research and Enterprise Group combines the research interests of researchers and PhD students working on fundamental geological and earth surface processes, and their application to environmental and resource management. Areas of expertise within the group include environmental nanotechnology, geochemistry, hydrology and hydrogeology, mineral deposits, sedimentology and geomorphology.

The group’s pure and applied research is aligned closely to industrial and business needs, with funding from a range of sources including research councils, the European Union, charities and industry. Members of the group are also active participants in the Centre for Aquatic Environments, and the Ecosystems, Remote Sensing and Environmental Management and Past Human and Environmental Dynamics research groups.

Research within the group falls under the following themes:

  • Past and present sediment dynamics
  • Applied geochemistry
  • Metcycle - Geosphere to Biosphere metal cycling
