About the course

In this course, you will learn about landscape form and its evolution over time and space, and how it is impacted by complex interplay between climate, geological, hydrological and cryospheric processes. Geomorphology is relevant to how people use the landscape and how we alter it and are also important for understanding the causes and effects of geohazards. An important focus for the course is landform development in different climate, space, and time perspectives. A field excursion is also included in the course.
