Research

The core scientific objective that underpins our research in the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences is to develop understanding of the natural and social environments of Planet Earth, the processes that shape them, and the challenges and processes that result from social and environmental change. We are a transdisciplinary institute, encompassing perspectives and methods from the sciences, social sciences and humanities, focused primarily on the discipline of Geography and its interface with the Earth Sciences, but engaging with, drawing from, and contributing to, cognate disciplines from Archaeology to Physics to Sociology.
