Publications


We have an excellent reputation for producing high quality scientific publications from our research and also for having amongst the mostly highly cited papers in the environmental science community, both in the UK and internationally. This was borne out by two separate surveys conducted by Thomson Reuters and also by an analysis conducted by Scopus in 2013.
