Our work reflects issues with major societal impacts including flooding, drought, ecosystem services associated with moving water, and delta futures. We have a major profile within the UK in relation to flooding and its impacts, but our research sites are world-wide including Iceland, Chile, the Yangtze and other major deltas in SE Asia. Our research centres on a number of sub-themes including geomorphological impacts of floods, glacial outburst floods, 'citizen science' in relation to flood risk, and Anthropocene water futures.
