The doctoral study program ‘Physical Geography and Geoecology’ prepares students for independent research at the international level. This research concerns, among others, the spatial and temporal interaction between the natural environment and society. Contemporary physical geography is primarily composed of the fields of geomorphology, hydrology, climatology, meteorology, biogeography, and pedogeography. Research in physical geography compliments advances in other scientific fields, such as geology and geophysics, geoinformatics, biology, and ecology. An important research approach in physical geography and geoecology is the comparison of modern-day natural phenomena with their evolution in the past. Understanding the dynamics of the natural environment in the past, especially during the Quaternary, enables projections into the future, both at the regional and global levels. -
