Research projects

It’s never been a more exciting time for scientific research, as can be seen from the range of projects we're currently involved in, many of which play a leading role in addressing some of the world’s biggest challenges.

Our researchers are at the forefront of those efforts, working on everything from climate change and natural hazards, to geochemistry, petrology and volcanology. The impact of their work can clearly been seen in the way it informs public policy and developments in industry.

Our research brings together experts from across the world, through collaborations with international partners and via financial investment from overseas. Other sources of funding include UK and national research councils and institutions.

Students play a fundamental role in research, with collaborations often including postdoctoral researchers, PhD students and undergraduate students. The opportunities for fieldwork presented by all our courses and programmes attract a high calibre of ambitious, aspiring geologists.
