The University of Leeds traces its roots to Leeds School of Medicine established in 1831 in West Yorkshire, England. The University of Leeds has a large student body and as part of the Russell Group ranks 10th among universities in the U.K for research grants. The university employs about 8,000 staff and professional employees. Approximately 33,300 undergraduate and graduate student attend the University of Leeds. The University of Leeds attracts many applicants for their Physics program, MBA program and health care programs.
Geoengineering our climate is not a 'quick fix'
The deliberate, large-scale intervention in the Earth's climate system is not a "quick fix" for global warming, according to the findings of the UK's first publicly funded studies on geoengineering.
The quantum secret to alcohol reactions in space
Chemists have discovered that an 'impossible' reaction at cold temperatures actually occurs with vigour, which could change our understanding of how alcohols are formed and destroyed in space.
Climate change will reduce crop yields sooner than we thought
A study led by the University of Leeds has shown that global warming of only 2°C will be detrimental to crops in temperate and tropical regions, with reduced yields from the 2030s onwards.
Woodland bat species sweats it out in the tropics
A bat species thought to be restricted to temperate forests has been found living thousands of miles from its known range in the sweltering heat of the southern Indian rainforest.
Power behind primordial soup discovered
(Phys.org) —Researchers at the University of Leeds may have solved a key puzzle about how objects from space could have kindled life on Earth.
Massive stars mark out Milky Way's 'missing' arms
A 12-year study of massive stars has reaffirmed that our Galaxy has four spiral arms, following years of debate sparked by images taken by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope that only showed two arms.
Grouse moor burning causes widespread environmental changes
Evidence of the environmental effects of moorland burning is published today in the first authoritative scientific study on the subject, with the aim of relieving tensions on both sides of the grouse moor management debate.
Wet computer server could cut internet waste
A revolutionary liquid-cooled computer server that could slash the carbon footprint of the internet is being tested at the University of Leeds.
New satellite maps out Napa Valley earthquake
Scientists have used a new Earth-observation satellite called Sentinel-1A to map the ground movements caused by the earthquake that shook up California's wine-producing Napa Valley on 24 August 2014.
Tropical collapse caused by lethal heat: Extreme temperatures blamed for 'dead zone'
Scientists have discovered why the 'broken world' following the worst extinction of all time lasted so long – it was simply too hot to survive.
