Smart Sustainable Futures

Human Geography research at the University of Aberdeen focuses on identifying theoretical insights and practical pathways to enhance environmental, social, and economic wellbeing through high quality, impactful research.

Earth Surface Processes

We study fundamental geoscience questions concerning Earth surface processes, including the impact of environmental change on surface processes across a range of timescales. Our focus covers the broad themes of cryosphere and hydrology.

Paleoecology

We focus on the reconstruction of long-term changes to environment, landscape and climate, with links to human activity during prehistory and early history.
