New NERC project ‘Legacy Waste in the Coastal Zone: Environmental Impacts and Management Futures’ Starts

The NERC-funded Large Grant: Legacy Waste in the Coastal Zone: Environmental Risks and Management Futures’ began in January 2020 and will run for 4 years until 2024. The project will undertake a coordinated approach to comprehensively investigate the spatial extent, characteristics, and physical and biogeochemical behaviour of municipal and industrial legacy wastes across the UK.
