Students from the Geography and Geology Department recently attended an international event around creative thinking and leadership.
For the third consecutive year, Prof Irene Delgado-Fernandez has co-convened the GM Session on “Coastal Morphodynamics: nearshore, beach and dunes” at the prestigious European Geosciences Union Assembly in Vienna.
Satellite imagery from the European Space Agency’s Sentinels mission is being exploited by researchers at Edge Hill University to explain seasonal trends in savannah vegetation.
Prof Cherith Moses recently joined her Thai-coast project team on reconnaissance fieldwork at the project’s two study sites: Nakhon Si Thammarat Province and Krabi Province, both in Southern Thailand.
Prof Cherith Moses’s new research project, ‘Thai Coast: Coastal Vulnerability, Resilience and Adaptation in Thailand’ was recently launched at a conference held at Mahidol University in Bangkok, Thailand.
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.
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.
The Geography Department has been successful at securing funds through the EHU Global Challenges Research Fund. The GCRF supports activities directly and primarily related to the economic development and well-being of developing countries. Activities funded are designed in order to contribute to efforts at achieve one ore more of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The […]
