MSc Climate & Environmental Sciences

Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg FAU
Campus Full time 2 years October 2018 Germany Nuremberg

Environmental processes and dynamics encompass many aspects of physical systems on global, regional and local scales. Accelerating climate change alters hydrological processes and biogeochemical turnover rates, affect landscape dynamics and ecological systems. These changes impose fundamental research challenges and, as a consequence, increase the volume of spatial data. These changes are studied by the Institute of Geography in Erlangen from different research perspectives. [+]
