The location of the campus gives access to a variety of eco-systems, ranging from alpine through lowland to a marine fjord environment. This landscape offers a unique natural laboratory for fieldwork and research.
The course provides you with the competence to critically instruct decision makers on how to improve the reliability of an ecologically based interpretation of environmental and climate change by simply adding geological long term information.
The course consists of three main modules:
We have lectures, exercises, fieldwork and laboratory practice. In addition, a science project will be performed throughout the whole semester.
The language of instruction is in English.
