Sediments and environmental change research group

Based within the School of Environmental Sciences, this influential research group is an international authority on sediments and sedimentary rocks.

We bring together experts from the University of Liverpool's extensive scientific community, along with those from international institutions and industry.

Our innovative research is contributing to safer, more efficient oil, gas and coal extraction and to the development of CO2 subsurface storage techniques.

We are playing a key role in developing future energy supplies, as authorities on sedimentary shale gas, coal bed methane and tight gas sandstones.

And our isotopic and fossil studies are enhancing climate change models with new data on how the planet responded to past environmental stresses.

The group works with prestigious international partners and enjoys solid funding.
