Ecological risk characterisation of novel soil amendments: assessing impacts on soil properties, earthworms and soil microbial functions (2023)
Thesis

Land application of water treatment residuals (WTRs), a by-product of drinking water treatment, is increasingly common due to tightening landfilling regulations and attempts to embrace greener practices. In this thesis a thorough literature review in...

Discrimination of thermodynamic and kinetic contributions to the heavy rare earth element patterns in metamorphic garnet (2022)
Journal Article

Variations of rare earth element (REE) concentrations in metamorphic garnet are an important source of information of geodynamic and geochemical processes in the deeper Earth. In order to extract this information, the thermodynamic equilibrium and ki...

Comparative geochemistry of Early Carboniferous marine red beds (MRBs) and their significance for deep time paleoceanographic reconstructions (2022)
Journal Article

Marine red beds (MRBs), also known as oceanic red beds (ORBs), are reddish colored sediments deposited within the marine realm that have been stained during deposition and/or early diagenesis because of changes in the ocean water chemistry in respons...

Living in a plastic world: problems, places, people, and perspectives on developing ‘Plastic Literacy’ through participatory arts (2022)
Thesis

Creative practice is experiencing a revival as both research method and vehicle for impact and public engagement in geographical research. Academics are increasingly collaborating with artists to deliver public engagement and impact with an emphasis...

Origin of Lower Cretaceous quartzose arenites in northern India and the Indus Basins of Pakistan-The result of provenance composition, weathering or diagenesis? (2022)
Journal Article

Lower Cretaceous (Aptian-Albian) sandstones of the Ghaggar-Hakra Formation in the Barmer Basin of northwest Rajasthan, India, have a complex depositional history which is confusing given they are quartzose arenites. The heavy mineral grains are very...

Determining patterns in the composition of dissolved organic matter in fresh waters according to land use and management (2022)
Journal Article

In fresh waters, the origins of dissolved organic matter (DOM) have been found to exert a fundamental control on its reactivity, and ultimately, its ecosystem functional role. A detailed understanding of landscape scale factors that control the expor... Read More about Determining patterns in the composition of dissolved organic matter in fresh waters according to land use and management.

The behaviour of nitrogen during subduction of oceanic crust: insights from in situ SIMS analyses of high-pressure rocks (2022)
Journal Article

Understanding the Earth’s geological nitrogen (N) cycle requires an understanding of how N behaves during dehydration of subducted crust. We present the first in situ measurements of N in silicate minerals by secondary ion mass spectrometry, focusing... Read More about The behaviour of nitrogen during subduction of oceanic crust: insights from in situ SIMS analyses of high-pressure rocks.

Standardised bioassays reveal that mosquitoes learn to avoid compounds used in chemical vector control after a single sub-lethal exposure. (2022)
Journal Article

Vector-borne diseases are worldwide public health issues. Despite research focused on vectorial capacity determinants in pathogen transmitting mosquitoes, their behavioural plasticity remains poorly understood. Memory and associative learning have be...
