The subject of Earth Sciences is the study of the planet we live upon, its air, soil, rocks, sea beds and land formations, but also the causes of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, earth-surface processes and the origin and behaviour of oceans and atmosphere. At the Department of Earth Sciences we study the planet Earth and its history, and the processes that operate in and on the Earth's surface.
We also study how humanity uses the Earth's resources and the consequences of these behaviours. Climate change, storms, minerals, earthquakes, tidal waves, desertification, landslides and pollution on the ocean floor are just some examples of fields of study within our department.
