The PhD is a higher degree awarded for a thesis presenting original research that makes a publishable contribution to knowledge or understanding.

Research in this programme is focussed on: Prediction of water quality from catchment characteristics; Pollution effects upon soil/plant/water ecosystems; Evaluation of critical loads and levels of pollutants; Modelling of atmospheric chemistry processes; Biogeochemical cycling and sustainability; Indoor and outdoor exposure to air pollution; Environmental impacts of volcanoes; Pathways and impacts of agricultural pollutants. The PhD requires a dissertation of up to 80,000 words, to be submitted by full-time students after a period of three years' study (or six years for part-time students), with a further maximum of one year allowable for writing up.
