Dr Alwyn Hart leads the Air, Land and Water Research teams for the Environment Agency Head Office (Evidence Directorate) with a particular personal focus on groundwater protection. Alwyn originally joined the Agency’s National Groundwater and Contaminated Land Centre some time in the last century after a spell with the Research Division of British Gas. The EA Research team’s role is to provide new evidence and tools to enable or support regulatory decision-making. We have work underway on a wide range of oil and gas topics such as baseline monitoring, monitoring technicques and statistics, flare performance, groundwater vulnerability and chemicals assessment. We often work closely with independent research groups such as the British Geological Survey and University Departments.
