Research Collaboration

The ERRC has worked closely with a large number of research groups from around the world on a wide range of environmental research projects.

These have included:


  • The Royal Society funded SWAP (Surface Water Acidification) Project
  • The NERC funded SCP (spheroidal carbonaceous particles) project for establishing the reliability of SCP records as chronostratigraphic markers in recent lake sediment.
  • The English Nature, DEFRA and NERC funded project on the impact of antifoulant paints in UK inland waters
  • The EU funded AL:PE, MOLAR and EMERGE projects on atmospheric pollution in Europe
  • The EU funded TRANSURANICS project studying the large‑scale and long‑term environmental behaviour of transuranic elements in European surface water systems
  • The EU funded CASSARINA Project on recent environmental change and human impact on North African wetland lakes
  • The US Environmental Protection Agency funded Western Airborne Contaminants Assessment Project to evaluate the ecological impact of airborne contaminants in US national parks
  • The US National Park Service funded landscape restoration project on Fire Island (New York)
  • The BICER (Baikal International Center for Ecological Research) funded project studying sediment records in Lake Baikal.
