    This project is about using moving meshes - r-adaptivity - to improve the predictive power of atmospheric flow simulations, which are used in the fields of numerical weather prediction and climate modelling. When the atmosphere is simulated on a computer, this is done b...

    The geological record offers an invaluable window into the different ways earth's climate can operate. The most recent large-scale changes in earth's climate, prior to modern climate change, were the Pleistocene glacial cycles, which feature growth and disintegration of...

    The subject of study of differential geometry are smooth manifolds, which correspond to smooth curved objects of finite dimension. In modern differential geometry, it is becoming more and more common to consider sequences (or flows) of smooth manifolds. Typically the li...

    The origin of eukaryotes from their prokaryotic progenitors was one of the most formative transitions in the history of life, catalysing the blossoming of eukaryotic biodiversity into the astonishing range of forms we see today, from the largest organisms on our planet ...

    Civil engineering works often encounter water flowing through the ground. Examples include embankment dams, flood walls and embankments, excavations beneath the water table, tunnels and deep basements. When considering their design, engineers seek to avoid cases where t...

    The loss of Arctic sea-ice is one of the most compelling manifestations of man-made climate change. Profound environmental change is already affecting Arctic inhabitants and ecosystems. Increasing scientific evidence, including many key papers by the PI, suggests the im...

    The material turn has come late to law, though it has shaped works in anthropology, history, philosophy, and science and technology studies. It is concerned with the roles that non-human objects play in human actions and relationships. We employ the term 'legal material...

    Partners: UCSC, University of Glasgow, RU, SFU

    Natural mortality and environmental resources are intimately related to physiology, body size, fecundity, and lifespan, all of which play an instrumental role in population dynamics. Yet mortality and resource limitation are notoriously difficult to measure in wild popu...
