Leeds University

water@leeds Case Studies

water@leeds staff and students are working on a range of projects across the water cycle, looking at different scales and across different disciplines. We will be posting examples of some of these projects here as case studies of the work we do with our many different project partners and research funders. The case studies will be changed every few months, so there should always be something of interest to come back and view.
