Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences (Environmental Sustainability)

The department's research investigates key areas of contemporary and historical societal concern, including development, climate change, inequalities, land-use change, ecosystem services, health and wellbeing and urbanisation; the lived environment refers to those aspects of the Earth system that are experienced by people, not as it is purely conceptualised or theorised, but as it is lived; it is a multidisciplinary concept that brings together environmental science, geography, economics, policy, social science and computer science.
