Course Overview

The Geography department is always keen to attract high-quality postgraduate students to join our research groups.

The MSc by Research Global Environmental Modelling enables students to pursue a one year individual programme of research. The MSc by Research would normally terminate after a year.

The Department's research groups are involved in a number of projects including:

  • Advancing application of stable isotopes in tree rings as indicators of climate/environmental change
  • Quantification of the past and future contribution of glaciers and ice sheets to Sea level rise
  • Understanding the response of the biosphere to variations in climate
