Organisation Profile

The Department of Geosciences and Geography is an exceptionally diverse unit for academic research and education. Our research interest range from exploring the experiences of minorities in cities, through plate tectonics to how environments have c hanged since life began. The common denominator of the research at the Department is our planet Earth, from its core to the structures of its surface.  The Institute of Seismology, which is a part of the Department, carries out international responsibilities in connection to monitoring seismic activities and the ban on nuclear tests.
