About this course
The innovative Master’s program in Earth System Science is based on the comprehensive scientific understanding of the Earth as a system. Aspects of the natural sciences are linked to topics in the agricultural and economic sciences in this interdisciplinary program.
The focus of this program lies on the analysis of the processes and interactions of the Earth system’s various components. This includes the study of human activities, population growth, food production and security, and land use and management as well as climate change.
The analysis and simulation of related phenomena, such as feedbacks in the soil-vegetation-atmosphere system and their impacts on the regional climate, allow for the creation of models, which provide useful insights into Earth system functions. Coupling climate models with agricultural and economic models provides a broader view of the Earth system and aids in creating concepts of sustainable development for all aspects of human life on Earth.
