Environmental Maths

Barbara Hardy Institute researchers develop and test mathematical models for a broad range of applications, including:

  • Climate variables (forecasting and time series analysis)
  • Renewable energy utilisation
  • Climate change and risk analysis
  • Heat transfer and energy efficient buildings
  • Water harvesting
  • Ecological footprints
