Jim Rose is an Emeritus Professor of Geography within the Department of Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London. Formerly Prof. Rose was the Gordon Manley Chair of Geography at Royal Holloway. He is a former recipient of the prestigious Murchison Award and the Victoria Medal of the Royal Geographical Society.
Prof. Rose's research covers a wide range of Quaternary science and process geomorphology and sedimentology: (glacial sediments and bedforms, palaeohydrology, palaeopedology, displaced shorelines, glacial stratigraphy of the British Isles, Early and Middle Pleistocene stratigraphy of Eastern and Midland England, and Northern Europe region, climate and environmental change through the Last interglacial/ Last glacial in Europe, environmental change and Human occupance of Britain). Highlights of this research include the introduction of the bedform concept to glacial geomorphology, recognition of the scale of river activity in relation to short-term climate change in Europe and Borneo, introduction of palaeosols to the British Quaternary stratigraphy and a major revision of the Early and Middle Pleistocene stratigraphy of Britain. Recent work has been involved with early Middle Pleistocene landscapes, the discovery of the Bytham River and the recognition of the presence of Humans on the British land area over 750,000 years ago.
