Trace metal accumulation through the environment and wildlife at two derelict lead mines in Wales (2024)
Journal Article
Sartorius, A., Johnson, M., Young, S., Bennett, M., Baiker, K., Edwards, P., & Yon, L. (2024). Trace metal accumulation through the environment and wildlife at two derelict lead mines in Wales. Heliyon, 10(14), Article e34265. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.heliyon.2024.e34265

Trace metal pollution is globally widespread, largely resulting from human activities. Due to the persistence and high toxicity of trace metals, these pollutants can have serious effects across ecosystems. However, few studies have directly assessed...

The role of religion in shaping the values of nature (2024)
Journal Article
Ives, C. D., Kidwell, J. H., Anderson, C. B., Arias-Arévalo, P., Gould, R. K., Kenter, J. O., & Murali, R. (2024). The role of religion in shaping the values of nature. Ecology and Society, 29(2), Article 10. https://doi.org/10.5751/ES-15004-290210

Environmental discourse frequently understands the values of nature as being instrumental, intrinsic, or relational and measured in biophysical, sociocultural, or monetary terms. Yet these specific values and value indicators are underpinned by world... Read More about The role of religion in shaping the values of nature.

“It Will Be a Desert”: Extreme Weather and the Effects of Climate Catastrophe on Vulnerable Riparian Spaces in Nairobi, Kenya (2024)
Journal Article
Howland, O. (2024). “It Will Be a Desert”: Extreme Weather and the Effects of Climate Catastrophe on Vulnerable Riparian Spaces in Nairobi, Kenya. Land, 13(7), Article 913. https://doi.org/10.3390/land13070913

Urban riparian spaces are notoriously vulnerable, and pressure on water resources is growing. In the context of a fast-growing urban population and a lack of state-level structures and services to deal with water and sanitation, these spaces—includin...

Greenhouse gas emissions from hydropower reservoirs: emission processes and management approaches (2024)
Journal Article
Wang, Z., Chan, F. K. S., Feng, M., & Johnson, M. F. (2024). Greenhouse gas emissions from hydropower reservoirs: emission processes and management approaches. Environmental Research Letters, 19(7), Article 073002. https://doi.org/10.1088/1748-9326/ad560c

Hydropower reservoirs, as vital inland waters bodies of anthropogenic origin, exhibit distinct characteristics from natural waters, thereby garnering research interest in the quantification and mapping of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In this revie... Read More about Greenhouse gas emissions from hydropower reservoirs: emission processes and management approaches.

Exploring Spatial Patterns of Tropical Peatland Subsidence in Selangor, Malaysia Using the APSIS-DInSAR Technique (2024)
Journal Article
de la Barreda-Bautista, B., Ledger, M. J., Sjögersten, S., Gee, D., Sowter, A., Cole, B., …Boyd, D. S. (2024). Exploring Spatial Patterns of Tropical Peatland Subsidence in Selangor, Malaysia Using the APSIS-DInSAR Technique. Remote Sensing, 16(12), Article 2249. https://doi.org/10.3390/rs16122249

Tropical peatlands in Southeast Asia have experienced widespread subsidence due to forest clearance and drainage for agriculture, oil palm and pulp wood production, causing concerns about their function as a long-term carbon store. Peatland drainage... Read More about Exploring Spatial Patterns of Tropical Peatland Subsidence in Selangor, Malaysia Using the APSIS-DInSAR Technique.

South Georgia marine productivity over the past 15 ka and implications for glacial evolution (2024)
Journal Article
Wilkin, J. T., Kender, S., Dejardin, R., Allen, C. S., Peck, V. L., Swann, G. E., …Leng, M. J. (2024). South Georgia marine productivity over the past 15 ka and implications for glacial evolution. Journal of Micropalaeontology, 43(1), 165-186. https://doi.org/10.5194/jm-43-165-2024

The subantarctic islands of South Georgia are located in the Southern Ocean, and they may be sensitive to future climate warming. However, due to a lack of well-dated subantarctic palaeoclimate archives, there is still uncertainty about South Georgia...

Unravelling long-term impact of water abstraction and climate change on endorheic lakes: A case study of Shortandy Lake in Central Asia (2024)
Journal Article
Baigaliyeva, M., Mount, N., Gosling, S. N., & McGowan, S. (in press). Unravelling long-term impact of water abstraction and climate change on endorheic lakes: A case study of Shortandy Lake in Central Asia. PLoS ONE,

Endorheic lakes, lacking river outflows, are highly sensitive to environmental changes and human interventions. Central Asia (CA) has over 6000 lakes that have experienced substantial water level variability in the past century, yet causes of recent...
