Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl

Research

Both basic research and applied research at the Department of Geoscience, Aarhus University, are divided into four main areas. These four areas are all concerned with gaining a deeper understanding of the geological processes and the Earth's systems, so that we can contribute with solutions to some of the problems that society faces. In all four main areas, the focus is on a sustainable future, and we deal with topics such as clean drinking water, mapping climate changes and sustainable energy and mining.

The division into main areas also applies to our students who in the master's program in Geology and Geophysics choose a specialization within one of the four main areas.
