Postgraduate conference helps students to communicate research findings

Published: 26 June 2012

The Geography and Environment Annual Conference took place at the University of Southampton on the 14th and 15th of June 2012. The conference showcases the range of research being carried out by current postgraduate research students across Geography and Environment.

Attended by research students and staff within the school, the two day conference gives our students the opportunity to present their research, invite feedback and engage in discussion. Bringing together all five research groups, first year students produced posters whilst second and third year research students gave 15 minute presentations. An important part of the postgraduate training programme, each student received feedback from at least two academic staff.

A poster session on the afternoon of the 14th showcased research from 16 first year students, including Elaine Rust’s Evaluating the Economic Impact of Cultural Events and Festivals and Tawia Abbam’s Bank Erosion, People and Bandals in Bangladesh.

Presentations included Prasan Pankaew’s Estimation of Diffuse PAR Fraction from Satellite Data, Thierry Fonville’s Human Islands: Paleoecology of Crannogs and Simon Dixon’s The Effect of Riparian Forest Management on Flood Risk and Flood Hydrology.
