Our research addresses three overarching themes, namely: climate, ocean and atmospheric interactions; the governance of resources and sustainability; and geosciences and natural hazards.
Our research has major global influence. Results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) ranked us first in the UK for research impact with 88% of research ranked world-leading or internationally excellent. This is further exemplified by the QS World University Rankings 2015 where our citations’ score is bettered by only one other university in the world. Furthermore, no other university has made as substantial a contribution to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as UEA. Our research is underpinned by excellent, well-funded facilities including the recent additions of a sea glider facility and a sea-ice chamber. Our facilities provide many opportunities for your research projects.
