Forest hydrology - PhD studentships
Phd Students asociated with the Forest Hydrology research programme.
Valuing and governing tree and forest ecosystem services
This research provides new insights into how to recognise and understand the value of ecosystem services provided by trees and forests.
Land management in lowland catchments for integrated flood risk reduction
The LANDWISE project is a collaboration of academics, policy makers and practitioners to investigate the impact of land use and management on flood risk in the Upper Thames catchment. It will quantify through measurement and modelling by how much, where and how the flood risk benefits can be up-scaled from local to river basin level.
SCALEFORES: Scaling Rules For Ecosystem Service Mapping
We are working with Southampton University and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology to develop and test novel modelling frameworks to explore the drivers of ecosystem services at different spatial scales in order to predict and map their delivery.
The effects of peatland restoration on water quality
We are investigating the effects of peatland restoration by deforestation on nutrient and carbon transport to the water environment.
Payments for Ecosystem Services (Forest for water)
The aim of the PESFOR-W COST Action is to synthesize knowledge, provide guidance and encourage collaborative research to improve Europe’s capacity to use Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES)
Forestry and Water Quality
Research to understand woodland-water interactions to reduce diffuse pollution and improve water quality
Impacts of forest fertilisation on water quality
This project aims to monitor the effects of aerial and hand forest fertiliser applications on water quality in sensitive water catchments.
Opportunity mapping for targeting grant aid for water benefits
Brief introduction to the targeting of Countryside Stewardship woodland capital grants in England
Opportunity mapping - targeting woodland creation for water objectives
Opportunity mapping has been developed to help identify these locations and promote more integrated catchment management.
