The core theme of my research is the measurement of atmospheric aerosols. Particulate matter is produced from both natural and anthropogenic sources and is known to have significant effects on both health and climate. However, the processes governing their lifecycle and effects are poorly understood, which hampers our predictive capability of them and their impacts.

Prof Clive Agnew

I am an applied climatologist and hydro-meteorologist working on problems of environmental degradation and environmental status assessment. I have worked extensively in both the drylands and the wetlands of Africa, Europe and the Middle East, developing strategies for the improved management of water shortages at local and regionallevels. I am currently engaged in studies of wetland hydrology in the UK with an emphasis up boundary layer fluxes and assessing the spatial variability of climate change predictions.

Prof Catherine McCrohan

Studies of invertebrate animals have long been used to increase our knowledge of how our own nervous system works. The reason such studies are useful is that the way nerve cells work is similar right across the animal kingdom, from invertebrates to humans.
