This programme supports high-quality, innovative research and research translation to help develop a healthy, safe and sustainable UK aquaculture system. It aims to bring together diverse expertise, knowledge, skills and facilities to deliver innovative approaches to solving industry challenges.
The aim of this programme is to draw together climate research and expertise to deliver robust, multi and interdisciplinary climate risk and adaptation solutions research. This will ensure the UK is resilient to climate variability, and able to exploit adaptation and green growth opportunities.
This programme brings together world-leading UK communities to use existing and new studies of clouds which, together with new capacity in climate modelling, will enable a better understanding of how clouds are affected by climate warming.
The aim of this programme on unconventional hydrocarbons in the UK energy system is to develop an updated independent scientific evidence base to understand potential environmental and socio-economic impacts and processes of unconventional hydrocarbon development.
The aim of this programme is to improve the representation of convection in the UK’s weather, climate and Earth system modelling systems. This will enable better understanding of convective processes and enable more accurate predictions of hazardous weather conditions.
This programme aims to examine:
- how pollutants enter, transform and interact within rivers, and the ecosystems that rivers support
- how the infiltration and movement of pollutants will be amplified or mitigated by a changing hydrological cycle induced by climate change
- strategies for improving or sustaining the quality of rivers across the UK.
This programme aims to bring together UK and Southeast Asian researchers to work collaboratively on:
- increasing understanding of both behaviour and impacts of plastics in marine ecosystems
- the risks to the essential services these ecosystems provide.
We aim to improve understanding of the suitability and effectiveness of different natural flood management measures for a range of flood risk scenarios. This programme will support novel research on hydrological, sediment and geomorphological processes, and flood modelling.
The aim of this programme is to increase resilience to hydrometeorological hazards in Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines. The focus is on creating a better understanding of likely impacts so that appropriate adaptation and mitigation measures can be implemented.
This programme aims to understand and address the challenges that China’s ecosystems are facing from population and industrial growth, such as degradation of soil and water scarcity, within the framework of the critical zone, the portion of the earth that supports life.
