Our experienced team of 30 academic and research staff lead a wide range of research projects and conduct consultancy work both in the UK and internationally. Staff at the centre work both as lone researchers on small projects as well as leading and collaborating on multi-million pound research grants with external academic, industrial, governmental and non-governmental partners. In addition, members of the Centre operate continuous environmental monitoring stations. The centre is also home to research students working on aquatic research projects.
The centre has access to state-of-the-art research facilities on the Moulsecoomb site, including specialist microbial and water quality laboratories, an experimental river basin, a water efficiency laboratory, as well as a large array of field equipment. All of these facilities are supported by a team of laboratory and workshop technicians. Field and laboratory facilities are used to support activities across our research themes, but are also used by visiting scholars and industry for collaborative projects and consultancy.
