The School of Earth and Ocean Sciences accommodates over 100 personnel, including 55 academics and two Fellows of the Royal Society as well as a postgraduate research school of some 35 students. These researchers are addressing some of the most significant research themes in the earth sciences, including global change, biosphere-hydrosphere-geosphere interactions, environmental science, natural resource exploration, and the evolution of the Earth and its biosphere. The School has maintained its reputation for excellence in research in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, publishing some 800 papers in international journals and raising over £11M of research income over the period of the upcoming assessment.
Research in the School is now organised into three Research Themes that organise our research activities into distinct Research Groups:
