NERC Advanced Training Short Course in soil and freshwater catchment science

Location: Lancaster University and the Eden Catchment, Northern England

Dates: 9-13th March 2015

NERC CATSCI course information

This training initiative will provide specialist skills and experience across the soil and freshwater sciences. Responding to the key gap in multidisciplinary understanding and skills identified in the environmental sciences by NERC, the initiative emphasises the importance of a multidisciplinary approach for both research and management across the land-water continuum. Direct experience of research techniques, management approaches and technologies in the soil and freshwater sciences will be provided.

The programme will be structured around the following key areas of soil and water science:

  1. Nutrient sources and mobilisation within agricultural landscapes
  2. Transport and degradation of nutrients within surface and sub-surface flowpaths
  3. Monitoring of chemical and biological indicators of freshwater ecosystem status

The travel, food and accommodation costs of participants will be met through the award. However, the number of places available on this training course is limited to 15. For details of how to apply, please contact:
