Environmental Science

Everyone is talking about the environment. What with global warming, climate change and carbon footprints it seems the environment is getting more exposure than ever. The stars have even jumped on the bandwagon with the recent Live Earth concert alerting people to environmental issues, releasing over 30,000 tonnes of carbon emission in the process. Realistically the population, perhaps unknowingly, is depending on environmental science to save us from the mess that’s been created. Relying on you, the scientists and researchers, to investigate truly significant affects on our environment and ways in which to deal with them.

The growing awareness of environmental issues has also sparked an awareness that new technologies can support and often accelerate solutions. GenStat is the only software of its kind to have grown up in and remain concentrated on life sciences; it provides data analysis tools tailored to meet your needs bringing viable research and results to the environmental sector.
