The Department of Earth Sciences has a strong research profile within two themes: climate and geology.
The theme focuses on climate change, variability and impacts from the past to the future. Five research groups have developed strongly. While specializing in different aspects in climate science, they interact to provide an integrated view on the subject.
Theme leader: Professor Hans Linderholm
All minerals and metals that we need to support our society come from mines in rock or sediment, and many of the risks which threaten our wellbeing have their origin in the geological environment.
Theme leader: Professor David Cornell
