Alan Jones Title

I am undertaking a PhD within the Institute of Atmospheric and Environmental Science at the University of Edinburgh. My current research examines the processes controlling sedimentation and sediment quality within Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS). This project enables me to draw upon my wider research interests in Fluvial Geomorphology, Hydrology, Geographic Information Systems and Environmental Modelling. Further academic interests involve the history and philosophy of science and the effect of different ontological/epistemological perspectives upon methodology within geomorphological research.
