    Research

    Tim’s research interests are mainly in hydrology and fluvial geomorphology, with over 30 years of experience working on sediment transport dynamics since he began his fluvial geomorphology PhD investigating “Forestry Effects on Sediment Sources, Dynamics and Yields in The Balquhidder Catchments, Central Scotland” in 1984 when he worked in the Department of Environmental Science,  University of Stirling (funded by a Natural Environment Research Council CASE Award Studentship with the Institute of Hydrology).  He worked at the Plynlimon Experimental Catchments in mid-Wales (1994-99 and 2017-19), and started another project there in 2016 examining the effects of new forest management practice on suspended sediment transport in the Afon Tanllwyth (funded by the International Atomic Energy Agency). In 2001 he began his research into the impact of climate change on suspended sediment transport and redistribution in the proglacial zones of rapidly retreating glaciers in polar and mountain regions. He has carried out fieldwork in Iceland (1 season), Svalbard (3 seasons), Greenland (2 seasons), French Alps (4 seasons), Swiss Alps (1 season); and British Columbia (2 seasons).    He was involved with the International Atomic Energy Agency on the Technical Co-operation INT-5/153 project (2014-19) on the impact of climate change on land-water-ecosystem quality in polar and mountainous regions for which he has produced a literature database and participated in expert missions to benchmark sites at the Aldegonda glacier in Svalbard (Jul-15), Haliougou Glacier, Huengdan Mountains, China (May-16) and Paron Lake, Peru (Oct-16), Huayan Potosi West Glacier in Bolivia (5100m) in May-17 and Mount Elbrus in the Caucasus in Aug-17 and he is also a named scientist for the Castle Creek (Canada) benchmark site. He is a scientific adviser on the project steering committee. He is currently a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Technical Co-operation INT-5/156 project (2020-24) on climate change adaptation solutions in mountainous ecosystems.

    He has published over 100 journal papers, 10 book chapters on various topics concerned with bedload and suspended sediment transport, bank erosion in forested and pro-glacial environments.  He has published four academic textbooks. He has also published on the benefits of fieldwork and expeditions, e-Learning, on-line learning and assessment, and the design, development and evaluation of virtual field guides, as well as on student employability in outdoor education.  He has made over 130 conference and seminar presentations around the world. He has been a research fellow in physical geography at Charles Sturt University, NSW, Australia in 2001 and at The University of Queensland, Brisbane in 2005.  He collaborates in research with University of Northern British Columbia, Penn State University in the USA and with the International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna.  He has directed/supervised ten successful LJMU PhD students in fluvial geomorphology, outdoor and environmental education, one MSc student and is currently Director of Studies for one PhD student.

    He has been external examiner for 24 PhDs, 5 MPhils and 3 MSc students at a range of institutions in UK and Canada.  He was a member of the Editorial Advisory Board for the Journal of Adventure Education & Outdoor Leadership (2005-15), reviews editor for fluvial geomorphology for the journal Progress in Physical Geography (2009-12) and reviewer for several top academic journals in physical geography/geomorphology and outdoor/adventure education. He taught on the BSc (Hons) Outdoor Education programme at LJMU from 1994 – 2020 and was its programme leader from 1997-2011.  He has also taught on the BSc (Hons) Geography programme at LJMU (2003-08).
