Posters in Parliament 2016

Posted on 25th January 2016

Our very own Damon Waterworth (single honours student from 2013-2015) will be exhibiting his research at the fourth Posters in Parliament exhibition on 2nd February.

Damon Waterworth left our department last summer with a 1st class BSc in Geography. This will be the 4th Posters in Parliament exhibition of research undertaken by undergraduate students from across the country. The event is part of the British Conference of Undergraduate Research (BCUR), an open coalition of universities dedicated to encouraging a national culture of undergraduate research. Every year, they award prizes for the two best posters. Each university has been asked to noninate a student for the second exhibition, which is where judging will take place.

Damon was nominated by the department of Geography and International Development and will representing the University of Chester at the exhibition.

Damon’s poster is entitled ‘The impact of land use on Blackpool’s coastal urban heat island’ (see poster above), and is based on “a project investigating the temporal and spatial characteristics of the Urban Heat Island phenomenon across Blackpool’s urban area, exploring coastal influences and quantifying heat stress.”

From all of us at the department of Geography and International Development, and everyone here at the University of Chester, we wish you the best of luck on the 2nd February!
