Urban environments

Our urban research work includes the analysis of spatial patterns of atmospheric and riverine pollutant concentrations and assessment of regulating urban ecosystem services.

We work in urban areas in the UK and overseas, with recent projects in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia and Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. Many of our projects are undertaken in collaboration with research users and in inter-disciplinary teams where we provide specialist inputs on urban physical geography, pollutant cycling, GIS and spatial analysis. Our research informs the development of environmental and climate adaptation measures and strategies.
