Project Details


Our research is delivering knowledge and training for the next generation of geoscientists and engineers to successfully meet the climate change challenge of attaining net zero carbon emissions and delivering secure and sustainable energy for the 21st Century. Our research is focussed upon geoscience and environmental science relevant to the sustainable and environmentally responsible extraction of natural gas, geothermal energy and mineral production to support the low carbon economy.
