Masters degrees in Geomorphology offer advanced study of the processes which determine the topography of the Earth’s crust.
Related subjects include Physical Geography. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Geography or Geology
Techniques in geomorphology help professionals to understand landform history and dynamics, and the physical, chemical and biological processes operating at or near the Earth's surface which determine their features. This could include for example glacial processes, or tectonic shifts.
Tracking these features over time allows Geomorphologists to predict future changes. Through a combination of field observations, physical experiments and numerical modelling, you will learn to do the same.
Training typically includes techniques in geomatics, such as remote sensing and GIS (geographical information systems). These are then interpreted through geovisualisation methods, including cartography to represent contour lines, hypsometric tints, and relief shading. Techniques in bathymetry (measuring the depth of lake or ocean floors) are also a component of most courses.
Careers may include roles in urban planning including deep foundation engineering, disaster planning, conservation, and environmental monitoring.
