Environmental Systems Analysis
Welcome to the online representation of our research group "Environmental Systems Analysis". If you do not find what you are looking for please do not hesitate to contact us. Thanks a lot for your interest!
Who we are
We are a group of researchers who are convinced that our interdisciplinary research can contribute to solving pressing environmental challenges. Our scientific co-operations combine complementary expertise to create synergies that enable us to advance our understanding of environmental processes and interdependencies, to provide the knowledge for policy decisions and sustainable management, and to raise public awareness and responsibility for our environment.
What we are looking for
We focus on interdisciplinary approaches to analyze the processes and interactions of environmental systems. In order to deepen our knowledge on mechanism and influencing parameters our research combines methods from system science and experimental data with mathematical modelling.
What we teach
For the study programs Geoecology, Geoscience, Environmental Sciences and Applied Environmental Geoscience we teach the scientific methodologies to analyze and understand complex environmental systems. On the basis of specific objectives or research questions students learn how to identify system elements, interactions and boundaries, their translation into mathematical/quantitative descriptions and their analysis including uncertainty and sensitivity.
