PhD projects

Chris Bradley’s current and research includes:

Hydrodynamics of floodplain wetlands: Ongoing work seeks to advance ways to investigate the hydrology of lowland floodplain wetlands and includes the modelling of shallow groundwater flows and river-aquifer interaction. Specific research projects have included the modelling of transient water table variations on floodplain wetlands using the USGS groundwater modelling programme, MODFLOW
Soil-water fluxes in macro-porous soils: Projects have examined water flow through peat deposits and in a cracking clay soil to investigate the factors contributing to macro-pore flow
Hydrology of permeable catchments: A recently completed project investigated surfacewater-groundwater interactions in a permeable chalk catchment in the UK (the River Lambourn)

Dr Bradley welcomes enquiries from prospective doctoral researchers in his areas of interest.
