Legacy Wastes in the Coastal Zone: Environmental Risks and Management Futures is a four year research project funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) as part of a Highlight topic. It brings together expertise in waste management, freshwater and seawater geochemistry, geomorphology, hydrology, ecology and environmental policy to provide a multi-scale assessment of the risks posed by municipal and mineral-rich legacy wastes in the coastal zone and provide a framework for their effective future management.
The project team includes researchers from Newcastle University, University of Hull, University of Exeter, University of Leeds, University of Plymouth, Liverpool John Moores University, University of Glasgow and the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology. Our project partners include:
