Research

In the context of renewed support for hydro under a low-carbon, renewable agenda, this interdisciplinary project will seek to investigate the emergence of environmental concerns relating to hydro in policy, scientific and societal fields, in Scotland and also Norway. In line with rivers’ temporal and spatial adjustment following impoundment, and reflecting the shifting hydrological, land use and policy context, this PhD is also ideally orientated to interrogate (i) the impact of existing historic schemes in Scotland; (ii) the potential for synergy, over trade-offs, with other policy priorities (e.g. flooding); (iii) the efficiency and optimality of historic schemes; and, (iv) the effectiveness of current regulatory frameworks to protect riverine environments now and into the future.
