The Society is delighted to be working with geographers leading UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) funded projects, to further our understanding of human influence on river basin functioning.
We are working with the project teams in a range of ways to disseminate the findings of the research to geography students in the UK and internationally through educational resources, to professionals through our Environment and Society event series, and the wider public through our public events programme.
Funded by the Natural Environment Research Council, Professor Dan Parsons at the University of Hull and Professor Steve Darby at the University of Southampton are leading the EvoFlood project which aims to develop a new generation of Global Flood Models.
Professor Andrew Nicholas from the University of Exeter and Professor Phil Ashworth from the University of Brighton are leading a project to develop a novel model which will be applied to the Amazon Basin to investigate the evolution of this landscape in the face of stressors including climate and land cover change, and widespread planned dam construction.
Dr Julian Leyland at the University of Southampton is leading a project exploring how environmental change affects the movement of sediment through rivers and into our oceans. The GLObal Suspended Sediment (GLOSS) project will develop a new dataset of fluvial sediment flux, use data science to explore the drivers of change and build a global sediment model to explore how flux will change in the future.
We will provide updates on the projects as they progress.
