Physical Geography

At Newcastle University we undertake world-leading multi-disciplinary research in the processes that shape our Earth over a range of time and spatial scales. We use this knowledge to address a number of pressing environmental issues within our changing world. Our research is centred on four major thematic areas:

Across these themes our research has been underpinned by the Natural Environment Research Council and other funders, leading to a track record of high quality research output. Our work frequently attracts global media coverage and we have a demonstrable record of impact and engagement. Our research drives and informs our undergradute teaching curriculum and supports scientifically excellent masters and doctoral projects resulting in a vibrant, integrated and inclusive academic community.
