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...

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...

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...

Red Sea rifting in central Egypt: constraints from the offshore Quseir province (2022)
The formation of oceanic crust in the southern and central Red Sea is generally accepted to have started at c. 5 Ma. However, the nature of the crust in the northern Red Sea is still debated. This paper describes the rift architecture, dynamics and e... Read More about Red Sea rifting in central Egypt: constraints from the offshore Quseir province.
The role of ‘living laboratories’ in accelerating the energy system decarbonization (2022)
To decarbonize the energy system by the year 2050, it is crucial that innovations are trialled in a ‘real world’ setting for the purpose of increasing public adoption and support, and for providing insights to decision-makers to ensure their decision...

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...

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... Read More about Origin of Lower Cretaceous quartzose arenites in northern India and the Indus Basins of Pakistan-The result of provenance composition, weathering or diagenesis?.
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.
Ovummuridae are calcareous, egg-shaped microfossils with an unknown taxonomic affinity. Their limited observation is due to their occurrence only within exceptionally preserved carbonate rocks that have undergone little to no diagenesis or aggrading... Read More about Ovummuridae (calcareous microfossils) from the Much Wenlock Limestone Formation, Shropshire, UK.
Introduction: Surveying the Seascape (2022)
This introductory chapter to the Handbook of Maritime Security frames the approach taken by its editors towards its compilation. The introduction demonstrates the various theoretical perspectives and the emerging norms and practices that comprise mar... Read More about Introduction: Surveying the Seascape.
Maritime Security in a Critical Context (2022)
In this chapter I propose a time and place of birth for maritime security. Utilising Deleuze and Guattari’s assemblage theory, I locate the original context from which maritime security arose in a foundational violent event that bore witness to the p...

Hybrid event beds are texturally and compositionally-diverse deposits preserved within deepwater settings. They are deposited by flows exhibiting ‘mixed behaviour’, forming complex successions of sandstone and mudstone, which are often challenging to... Read More about Hybrid event bed character and distribution in the context of ancient deep-lacustrine fan models.
Sustaining ecosystems – English grouse moors (2022)
Our English uplands (including grouse moors) are subject to an increasing number of societal demands and needs. This audit assesses grouse moor management’s contribution to Defra’s 25 Year Environment Plan goals – an expression of social needs – and...

Antiphased dust deposition and productivity in the Antarctic Zone over 1.5 million years. (2022)
The Southern Ocean paleoceanography provides key insights into how iron fertilization and oceanic productivity developed through Pleistocene ice-ages and their role in influencing the carbon cycle. We report a high-resolution record of dust depositio... Read More about Antiphased dust deposition and productivity in the Antarctic Zone over 1.5 million years..
George Perry (1771–1823): architect and naturalist (2022)
George Perry (1771-1823) was an artist, architect and sculptor, with a deep interest in natural history and malacology. (His father, George Perry (c.1718-1771), was a pioneering industrialist, with a particular interest in geology and also the histor...

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...

The sedimentary record of ultrahigh-pressure metamorphism: a perspective review (2022)
Tracing ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) metamorphism of crustal rocks through the geological record is a key for understanding the evolution of plate tectonics on Earth due to the linkage with deep subduction processes. Until recently, UHP research was almo... Read More about The sedimentary record of ultrahigh-pressure metamorphism: a perspective review.
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...
