Coupled hydrogeophysical and geomechanical modelling of slope stability for improved early warning of landslides impacting natural and engineered infrastructure slopes

Coupled hydrogeophysical and geomechanical modelling of slope stability for improved early warning of landslides impacting natural and engineered infrastructure slopes

There is a growing interest in linking hydrogeological and geomechanical models to improve understanding of hydrological processes triggering landslides, but progress has been limited by an inability to provide high spatial and temporal resolution input data on the physical properties of the subsurface (e.g. strength, materials, composition) and changes associated with hydraulic processes (e.g. pore […]

Undergraduate research experience placement in inter-specific and environmental variability in woody functional traits of tropical trees at CEH, Edinburgh

Summer Placement Opportunity Supervisor: Dr Lindsay F Banin, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology Edinburgh Relatively little is known about variability in woody traits of tropical trees, when compared with foliar traits, apart from simple measures such as wood density. However, these traits could reveal important insight into how trees function, how forest communities are structured […]
