Environmental sciences deal with factors
and processes which shape natural landscapes at different scales of space and
time. The aim of the program is to provide the students theoretical and
quantitative knowledge in Environmental sciences and to conduct independent
research in various scientific fields such as soil sciences, biogeochemistry,
ecology, geomorphology and others. The program includes courses in climate
change, geomorphology, geology, soils, hydrology and ecology. Studies at the
field sites and in the department labs are integral part of the program.
Integrations with remote sensing and GIS tools are encouraged. A focus is given
to the understanding of the impact of environmental changes (natural or
anthropogenic) on landscape development.
