Weathering of silicate and carbonate minerals on the land surface naturally stabilises the climate over thousands of years. Researchers at the University of Oxford, in the Department of Earth Sciences are working to understand these processes to investigate how climate may have changed in the past, and how it may change in the future.
Some researchers think that mining silicate rocks, grinding them to powder, and spreading them onto the land surface will accelerate weathering sufficiently to prevent climate change. This is a ‘negative emission technology’ that proposes to draw CO2 out of the atmosphere. However, the feasibility of some of these technologies is questionable, and considerably more research is required.
To assess the potential of enhanced weathering Scientists at the University of Oxford, using soil cores provided by Soils Limited, are working to assess the potential of enhanced weathering. If feasible, this could form an important part of the solution to climate change.
The project comprised the construction of six two-storey, semi-detached three-bedroom houses and the construction of a commercial CO-OP building in the northern section of the site.
Soils Limited was commissioned to undertake a ground investigation by the RNLI for a proposed new lifeboat station at RNLI Penlee, The Strand, Newlyn
Redevelopment of the current Marina with the creation of over 200 berths; a dry stack a boatyard with a 75-tonne boat hoist servicing, commercial units, restaurants and passenger ferry link.
The site is to be redeveloped as a care home with outlying sheltered residential properties arranged around a central administrative centre.
