Earth and Environmental Sciences (SEES)
Centre for Applied Geoscience
CAG brings together applied geoscience research and consultancy activities carried out across four departments. We specialise in the investigation and management of natural and man-made hazards and the conservation of our geo-heritage. Our aim is to carry out research that has a direct impact upon communities, helping them to adapt to environmental change, and improve the resilience and sustainability of homes, jobs and cultures.
Members of the team have internationally recognised expertise in the fields of Engineering Geology & Geomorphology, Geotechnical Engineering, Remote Sensing, Disaster Management and Geographical Analyses. Our work is supported by the Royal Thai Government, Government of Greece, Federal Government of Nigeria, Ministry of Defence (MoD), North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), Leverhulme Trust, National Environment Research Council (NERC), Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Ordnance Survey. We also carry out commissioned research on behalf of industrial partners.
