Climate and Resources

Naturwissenschaftliche Fakultät


Earth’s climate and resources are interdisciplinary research topics with increasing societal and economic relevance. The present focus area investigates:

  1. climate change and its impacts at shallow and deep time scales,

  2. the formation and sustainable exploitation of natural resources,

  3. the implications for society and governance as e.g. climate adaptation and management of disasters, risks, and resources.

The activities integrate comprehensive field surveys, laboratory analyses and complex modelling at different spatial and temporal scales. Altogether, the focus unites an emerging FAU research field based on research groups from the Department of Geography and Geosciences as well as the Department of Chemistry. This focal field is currently in its consolidation phase with links to other faculties and research foci.
