About

Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at The University of Edinburgh typically involve fieldwork, remote sensing, laboratory experimentation and analysis, theory, modelling and stakeholder engagement. Our research extends throughout the world, over all seven continents, from poles to equator, from the deep Earth to the upper atmosphere.

Overview

Within the institute, we exchange knowledge regularly in weekly seminar programmes and smaller research group discussions, and the institute also comes together in twice-yearly Global Change Symposia where students, staff and stakeholders discuss our latest developments and outline new grand challenges.

Training during the Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at The University of Edinburgh 

You will receive guidance both from your supervisory team and the postgraduate research office on appropriate training specific to your research needs and requirements. Additionally, an academic advisor, separate from your direct supervisory team, is always available to help support you and track your progress and welfare throughout your research degree.

Programme Structure

Research topics
  • Much of our research revolves around understanding, predicting, and mitigating for the many changes that our world is experiencing. 
  • We host longstanding programmes in understanding how the atmosphere, biosphere, cryosphere, land surface and oceans have interacted in the past, in monitoring their current behaviour, and in developing predictions of their future dynamics. 
  • Building on these scientific foundations, we further engage in interdisciplinary research focused on mitigating the many challenges posed by the global climate emergency, and environmental hazards, inequalities and sustainability.
