A map which shows the rate at which European coastlines are changing has been released by the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) with the help of an Edge Hill geography academic.
In mid-February Prof Cherith Moses welcomed academics from the Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST), located in the Kansai Science City, close to Osaka and Kyoto in Japan, to the EHU Data Science STEM Research Centre.
Dr Joaquín Cortés has been awarded new funds for a new research project entitled ‘Holocene activity at Quetrupillán volcano, Chile. Implications for hazard and risk assessments’.
During January, Prof Cherith Moses held a series of meetings in Mahidol University, Chulalongkorn University and Thammasat University in Bangkok, Thailand. She met with colleagues to progress the work for two new research projects: (i) the Newton Fund, NERC-ESRC-TRF, research project ‘Thai coast: Coastal Vulnerability, Resilience and Adaptation in Thailand’ that started in October 2018 and (ii) the complimentary EHU Global Challenges Research Fund project ‘Climate Change, Coastal Erosion and Risks of Flooding to Low-Lying Coastlines Subject to Tropical Storms, Thailand’ that started in January 2019.
GTA/PhD candidate Emma Readitt attended the NERC funded ‘Quaternary Palaeoecology short course’ last week in the Natural History Museum, London. Emma successfully obtained her place on the training course in December 2018 through a competitive application process. The course fully funded 15 students to travel to London, provided accommodation and to be trained by leading scholars in the palaeo field. Of the 15 students, 13 were NERC funded and given priority on the course. Emma obtained one of the two non-NERC funded slots which was notably competitive.
Dr Joanne Egan and PhD student Emma Readitt presented their research at the QRA ADM 2019 at The University of Chester. Joanne presented her research on “Postglacial diatom-climate responses in a small lake in the Pacific Northwest of North America” discussing diatom inferred Holocene climate variation and the possible link to the El Nino Southern […]
Pollution can have devastating consequences for nature and people. A recent study by Dan Knight (Geography Department, EHU) indicates that significant pollution can be found in relatively remote locations in Britain. Dan was recently granted the award of MRes for the programme of research entitled: ‘The influence of topography on pollution deposition in Snowdonia National […]
A major study aims to improve understanding of the vulnerability of Thailand’s shoreline and coastal communities to storms, floods and coastal erosion under future climate change scenarios.
