The most dangerous worldview is the worldview of those who have not viewed the world.

Geography and Earth System Science

Earth is a complex system of interacting spheres. Our research in Physical Geography and Environmental Change focuses on the interaction between climate, water, soil, surface, vegetation and humans. Our aim is to identify the functioning of landscape systems, their spatial extent, reaction to change and mutual effects on each other.
