Environmental Sciences Research Institute (ESRI)

The Environmental Sciences Research Institute brings together pure and applied researchers who investigate a range of environmental systems, with an emphasis on those with societal relevance. Examples include research on natural hazards and climate change, as well as human and physical influences in ecological, freshwater, coastal, and marine systems. We are interested in understanding past, present and future changes in the Earth system through field observation and measurement, theory and computational modelling.

Details of the research interests of particular staff members are available via their individual staff web-pages.

Keep up to date with current research projects and initiatives via our news blog and twitter feed.
