School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences



The Water Resource Systems Research Laboratory is delivering a unique combination of climate, catchment and coastal modelling, together with advanced hydroinformatics, risk analysis and decision support tools.

We back up our computational and statistical research with a long-term commitment to field experimentation at a range of scales. This provides the data necessary to pioneer process understanding and underpin model validation.

We've converted scientific achievements into tools to transform industry practice. Our system-scale perspective is shaping the policy agenda.

The Centre for Earth Systems Engineering Research (CESER) is providing analyses, tools and demonstrations to enable practical responses to the challenges of intensifying global change.

CESER is tackling the complexity of coupled technological, human and natural systems, at a range of spatial and temporal scales.

Through data acquisition, systems modelling and decision-support research is shaping the management of long term change and associated uncertainties of civil engineering systems, in particular for river basins, urban areas and infrastructure networks.


In tandem, the Centre for Land Use and Water Resources Research (CLUWRR, located in the Institute for Sustainability for interdisciplinary working) is having a remarkable impact in the developing world. It successfully integrates bio-physical and socio-economic research to tackle water management challenges set out in the Millennium Development Goals.
