The Long-term Co-Evolution of Life and the Planet
_A new research programme sponsored by the United Kingdom's Natural Environment Research Council
_'Long term coevolution of Life and the Planet' is a 4-year programme which is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council as part of the Earth Systems Science theme. The aim of the programme is to promote interdisciplinary research into periods of major environmental and biological change in earth history and to improve our understanding of how these affected the composition of the atmophere, ocean and the evolution of life. The programme assists in the training of young scientists through project studentships and short courses and engages in various public engagement activities.
For more information about the four main research projects, please go to Research Projects;
For more information about the young scientists training short courses, please go to Summer/Spring School;
For more information about public engagement activities, please visit GEOBUS webisite.
