Program description

This programme is for students interested in the physical processes that shape the Earth linking physical geography with a deeper understanding of how the Earth works.
It develops an integrated understanding of the Earth as a connected system - the topography of which is developed through the interaction of surface and deep Earth processes. Life, plate tectonics, volcanoes, glaciers, rivers and people ultimately define the modern and ancient landscape.
This quantitative programme is designed to give students the skills and knowledge to interpret the landscape as a result of the interactions between tectonics and erosion, and to understand and predict its evolution over a range of temporal and spatial scales, using a combination of remote sensing (including Geographical Information Systems), laboratory experiments and fieldwork in various settings, which have in recent years included Scotland, Spain and Cyprus.
