Water Sciences

Research to monitor groundwater during 'fracking'Exploring key interfaces between surface water and groundwaterResponding to climate and human impacts on hydrological systems

Water is a major research theme at Birmingham. We are developing a supradisciplinary science base that utilises cutting-edge field, laboratory and modelling approaches. By building on core strengths in ecohydrology and hydrogeology and blending these with skills across engineering and the social sciences, we address key water-related challenges for a changing environment.
