  • Drivers of increased dissolved organic carbon (DOC) release from soils to surface water
  • Impacts of hydrological extremes (drought and flooding) on carbon cycling in soils
  • Catchment management to support drinking water provision
  • Resilience of peatland ecosystems to environmental change
  • Carbon cycling in forest soils
  • Co-benefits from ecosystem services delivered from natural flood management
  • Perceptions and understanding of ecosystem services and dis-services
