The University of Durham traces its roots some 600 years. The University of Durham received its Royal Charter in 1832. The University of Durham is comprised of the main departments and 16 colleges. The flagship campus is located in Durham, England and the other campus is in Stockton-On-Tees. The University of Durham is noted for its engineering, technology and design educations and an exemplary medical school The University of Durham consistently acquires grants and funding for research. Research digests are available on-line.
The risk of man-made earthquakes due to fracking is greatly reduced if high-pressure fluid injection used to crack underground rocks is 895m away from faults in the Earth's crust, according to new research.
Strict controls would be "a necessity" to minimise the risk of spills and leaks from any future UK shale gas industry, according to new research.
Large and small scale solar eruptions might all be triggered by a single process, according to new research that leads to better understanding of the Sun's activity.
Further evidence of the existence of dark matter – the mysterious substance that is believed to hold the Universe together – has been produced by Cosmologists at Durham University.
Only a quarter of the shale gas contained in one of the UK's largest reserves might be recoverable because of limited space to develop the wells needed to extract it, according to new research.
Astronomers have developed a way to detect the ultraviolet (UV) background of the Universe, which could help explain why there are so few small galaxies in the cosmos.
