Climate & Meteorology
|University website:||Polar Landscapes and Quaternary Climate|
In many places of the world we experience rapid environmental change. In the Master's Program you get knowledge and skills necessary for the understanding and analysis of polar and alpine landscapes.
You get insights in how they have changed on different time scales, linked to climate variations during the Quaternary period. Climate change is particularly rapid in the glacial and periglacial landscapes of polar and alpine regions. The program will provide you with knowledge about the global climate system's functioning and about methods used to reconstruct climate and environmental change. In addition, human and natural causes of climate change are presented and discussed.
The program gives you skills and tools that make you attractive in the labour market, and it also prepares you for a career in research. Today, former students work in consultancies and various government and regional authorities. Many have moved on to doctoral education both in Sweden and abroad.
