This Group explores how life has interacted with Earth over long time scales. We document how life has evolved, how environmental change created opportunities and constraints for diversification, and how life has controlled the evolution of biogeochemical cycles. Our research straddles the disciplines of geology, palaeontology, evolutionary biology, ecology, microbiology, oceanography, and geochemistry.
The Geohazards and Risk group brings together expertise in Natural Hazards from across the University of Edinburgh in conjunction with partners such as the British Geological Survey. Our aim is to provide a cross-disciplinary forum to forge new research collaborations and to facilitate end-user engagement.
For general enquiries, please contact the group's convenor, Dr Mark Naylor.
Our staff are involved in many different research centres and project consortia involving universities and other institutions around the globe. Our research centres facilitate research programmes across disciplines and between institutions.
