Learning about earth processes
Earth Systems Analysis (ESA)
The department of Earth Systems Analysis combines earth science knowledge with spatial modelling and advanced remote sensing to understand earth processes in space and time. Our education and research contribute to a sustainable use of energy and earth resources, and help reduce disaster risk and the impact of natural hazards on society.
Earth science, technology and people are central in all our course offerings.
At the crossroads of earth resources, natural hazards and land management.
Research and capacity development projects that we participate in:
