2015 - Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh
2014 - Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (UK)
His main research concerns Hydrology, Shallow water equations, Inorganic chemistry, Surface runoff and Mechanics. His studies deal with areas such as Power, Tidal stream energy, Carbon sink, Firth and Terrestrial ecosystem as well as Hydrology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Depth averaged, Froude number, Meteorology and Finite volume method.
His work carried out in the field of Finite volume method brings together such families of science as Geometry, Flow, Flash flood and Stage. His research investigates the link between Surface runoff and topics such as Sediment that cross with problems in Precipitation, Drainage basin, Climate change, Delta and River delta. The various areas that Alistair G.L. Borthwick examines in his Mechanics study include Cnoidal wave, Waves and shallow water and Wind wave.
Alistair G.L. Borthwick spends much of his time researching Mechanics, Hydrology, Shallow water equations, Flow and Free surface. His Mechanics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Turbine, Geotechnical engineering, Waves and shallow water and Classical mechanics. His Hydrology study combines topics in areas such as Structural basin and Sediment.
His Shallow water equations research focuses on Finite volume method and how it connects with Computational fluid dynamics. Alistair G.L. Borthwick regularly links together related areas like Vorticity in his Flow studies. His Free surface research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Slosh dynamics and Inviscid flow.
Alistair G.L. Borthwick mainly focuses on Mechanics, Hydrology, Turbine, Sediment and Nonlinear system. His Mechanics research incorporates elements of Oscillating Water Column and Actuator. His work in the fields of Flood myth, Erosion and Surface runoff overlaps with other areas such as Water discharge.
In his research on the topic of Nonlinear system, Diffraction and Standing wave is strongly related with Computational physics. His Free surface research includes themes of Cylinder and Froude number. He has included themes like Waves and shallow water and Open-channel flow in his Shallow water equations study.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental chemistry, Bioremediation, Vanadium, Mechanics and Geobacter. His work deals with themes such as Contamination, Soil contamination and Health risk assessment, which intersect with Vanadium. His study in Health risk assessment is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both China and Environmental protection.
The concepts of his China study are interwoven with issues in Global warming, Tropics, Crop and Developing country. His Mechanics study focuses on Computer simulation in particular. The Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Sediment transport, Irrigation, Physical geography, Erosion and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index.
