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 […]

Measuring and modelling the dermal bioavailability of organic soil contaminants for human health risk assessment of contaminated land

Measuring and modelling the dermal bioavailability of organic soil contaminants for human health risk assessment of contaminated land

This industrial CASE studentship is a unique opportunity to develop innovative science in the field of organic geochemistry and risk-based land management of post-industrial brownfield sites affected by contamination. The CASE studentship attracts an increased stipend and expenses for laboratory equipment, consumables, travel and conference attendance. You will be working with a supervisory team of […]

Measurement and modelling human dermal bioavailability of potentially harmful organic soil contaminants

Measurement and modelling human dermal bioavailability of potentially harmful organic soil contaminants

This PhD studentship presents a unique opportunity in the fields of organic geochemistry and risk-based land management. The student will optimise in vitro methods to measure the dermal bioavailability of organic soil contaminants and use the data to derive predictive numerical models. These models will help identify which factors affect the release of organic compounds […]

Lignin as a tracer for terrestrial vegetation across the river-estuarine-coastal continuum

Lignin as a tracer for terrestrial vegetation across the river-estuarine-coastal continuum

Biogeochemical processes in rivers, estuaries and coastal seas play key roles in the global carbon C cycle by controlling the flux of material from land to ocean. It has been estimated that as little as 10% terrestrial organic matter is transferred from rivers to sites of burial in the sediments of continental margins. However, the […]
