The Environment Research Theme is one of the key research clusters at Sohar University. This group consists of a team of multidisciplinary academic researchers who apply their knowledge to environmental engineering, mathematic modelling, and sustainable environmental management principles to solve key environmental issues. Researchers within this theme have successfully carried out major research projects funded by TRC and the UK government. The research facilities available to this theme include sophisticated analytical equipment such as a gas chromatograph, a TOC analyzer and pilot scale reactors for treating polluted water and air samples and geo-environmental testing. The research theme involves undergraduate and postgraduate student researchers in project activities and provides them with hands-on training on equipment and reactor facilities helping to build in-country research capacity.
