Section of Geography









We conduct research within the field of geography which range from urban planning, labour market relations, poverty and migration in developing countries within the social scientific sphere of geography – to land system science, value chains, coastal protection, soil mapping and climate analyses within the natural geographical sphere.

Futhermore we have environmental geographers who are engaged in natural resource management and landscape analyses from both a natural and a social scientific perspective. Our geoinformaticists use IT tools to process and analyse large volumes of spatial data and to find ways of using satellite images to predict, e.g. food shortages.
