The University of Brighton is currently looking for volunteers for a pilot case study of people who love nature and are currently living in the Brighton and Lewes Downs Biosphere Reserve (BLDBR).
Environmental Sciences BSc(Hons) graduate Karen Bowles tells us why choosing the University of Brighton was one of the best decisions she has made, and where her career has taken her since she graduated.
Professor Andrew Church, Professor of Geography and Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research and Enterprise), was part of the global team of 50 environmental experts who launched four regional assessments of biodiversity and ecosystem services that cover the Americas, Asia and the Pacific, Africa, as well as Europe and Central Asia
Testing piping and erosion processes in managed realignment sites through a newly designed apparatus – Dr Heidi Burgess and Florence Van Vaerenbergh
Managed realignment is a relatively new scheme of coastal defence, aiming to use natural environments to protect our coastlines and reduce the maintenance cost of hard defences. Research so far has focused on vegetation development and sediment transport processes to assess the success of given schemes at reproducing an intertidal habitat. There is however very little information on the impact of exposing a previously protected ground to tidal cycles on the erosion processes and the formation of drainage channels through piping.
For my final year project, I am using an entirely new apparatus which is based on previous Read More
Undergraduate Geography BSc (Hons) student Ellie Crabbe (currently on placement at GE Aviation) had the fantastic opportunity of joining lecturer Dr Annie Ockelford on a research trip to the Cascades National Park in America over the summer.
To mark International Women’s Day in 2018 we are celebrating the achievements of just some of the academics working here at Brighton.

University of Brighton scientists have been helping Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network (CITiZAN) research the submerged landscape around the Birling Gap in East Sussex.
The research was been filmed for Channel 4’s ‘Britain at Low Tide’, the community-based coastal archaeology series, which was broadcast on Saturday (17 Feb): now available on C4’s Catch Up.
As part of a module on exploration geology, third year geology students went to the Sheepcote valley landfill site to practice field techniques in environmental geophysics. The exercise involved using ground electrical conductivity, changes in the Earth’s magnetic field and natural radiation to map out the boundaries of the buried site.
Our first year Geography and Environmental Sciences students set off on a fieldtrip to Greece in their first semester at Brighton.
