Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (EOAS) provides fundamental knowledge that builds up our scientific realization and understanding of the earth system and changing trends. EOAS focuses on interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary studies of interactions among ocean, atmosphere, and land in the earth system for the regional sustainable environment and climate change. It covers the multidisciplinary study of physical, biogeochemical, earth surface science, and hydrology in the watershed and river-basin for the coupled systems of land-sea, air-sea, air-land, and land-sea-atmosphere interactions.
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Programme in Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences aims to provide rigorous training and research in EOAS that prepare students to face challenges of the changing earth system and the sustainable environment under changing climate on both regional and global scales.
A candidate for a PhD degree is expected to demonstrate mastery of knowledge in the chosen discipline and to synthesize and create new knowledge, making an original and substantial contribution to the discipline.
