Our staff and postgraduate students are innovative, creative scholars.
Much of our research takes final form in high-impact articles or books. But a considerable amount of our activity takes place in other mediums. There is no single formula for communicating research that operates at different speeds and rhythms, and we are committed to sharing our research in all its forms, from the fine-grained steps of partnering in community initiatives through to the high-resolution experiences of virtual reality and drone mapping.
Forthcoming this October, Colin McFarlane examines the social, material, and spatial fragments of cities and how they come to matter in the experience, politics, and expression of urban worlds.
Major melt water event during last deglaciation dominated by North America
Durham Geography's Yucheng Lin led a new study in Nature Communications comparing the major meltwater sources that explain sea level rise at the end of the last deglaciation.
Durham Geographers Yucheng Lin, Pippa Whitehouse, Sarah Woodroffe, and Ian Shennan have co-authored a new article in Nature Communications showing that sea level rise from the largest melt water pulse of the last deglaciation was dominated by North America. Together with colleagues at University of York, Australian National University, and the University of Sheffield their sea-level based results reconcile field-based ice-sheet reconstructions of this major event.
