The School of Geographical Sciences is one of the world's leading international centres for research and educational scholarship. The Graduate School is integral to this success. We have a large and vibrant graduate community, focussing both on PhDs by research and on taught programmes. The graduate community has a strong international and interdisciplinary flavour, and offers an exceptional academic environment for postgraduate research.
The research opportunities span a variety of subjects at the leading edge of geographical research. There is also a range of exciting possibilities for interdisciplinary research that cross and connect research groups as well as departments.
We urge you to consult the websites of individual members of staff as well as websites that detail collective research interests.
The School's Physical Geography research is focussed on a number of themes which take due cognisance of UK Research Council priority areas, industrial and other stakeholder interests. These themes are reflected in our three research groups:
Global Environmental Change
The Bristol Research Initiative for the Dynamic Global Environment (BRIDGE) group aims to improve the understanding of natural climate and environmental variability and the relationship between global carbon cycling and climate, and to use this knowledge to improve our predictions of future change and its impacts on all aspects of ecosystems and human society.
The Bristol Glaciology Centre leads world-class research into ice sheet processes and subglacial environments. Their aim is to increase our understanding of the present, past and future behaviour of ice sheets and glaciers, and the links between the cryosphere, oceans and atmosphere under changing climatic conditions.
The research interests of the Hydrological Research Group focus on the modelling of hydrologic and hydraulic problems using advanced numerical methods. They particularly specialise in modelling river flooding, water quality monitoring, uncertainty analysis techniques, catchment and slope transport processes combined with field monitoring and large-scale experimental work.
