Dr Robert Bryant


Back to staff list

Rob’s research focuses on the role of the dust cycle within the global climate system, with emphasis on geomorphological, hydrological and ecological processes that occur within drylands. He is particularly interested in the application earth observation approaches to both monitor and better understand a range of earth-atmosphere interactions, but also has a wide range of interests within the wider realm of earth and environmental science, including:

  • Improved quantification of dust emission processes within global climate models
  • Use of global earth observation products to better understand landscape dynamics and change within drylands
  • Improving our understanding of regional/global dust source processes and atmospheric interactions
  • Investigating human impacts on dust source regions (and vice versa)
  • Global assessment of hydrological and ecological processes in dryland regions
