2011-2015 Programme summary at the 2014 Conference: Future perspectives in Earth System Science
'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 atmosphere, 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.
Notable contributions to the programme were made by several senior and young researchers from UCL Earth Sciences. The Programme is managed by Ms Ying Shield-Zhou.
