Masters degrees in Land-Atmosphere Interactions offer advanced study of the interface between terrestrial, marine and atmospheric processes, such as the exchanges of moisture and energy.
Specialisations include Hydrology, Hydrometeorology, Meteorology and Micrometeorology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Environmental Science.
Land-Atmosphere Interactions Masters explore the interactions between the lithosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere. Courses are highly dynamic, and include methodologies from disciplines such as Soil Science, Biology, Environmental Science and Geology.
For example, you might investigate how an understanding of the Earth’s weather systems (Meteorology) is advantageous for industries such as agriculture and aviation. For the former, you could analyse topics such as soil moisture plant physiology. For the latter, you’d likely examine turbulence, convection and atmospheric circulation.
It is also possible to examine processes within different ecosystems which are formed by Land-Atmosphere Interactions, such as biogeochemical cycling within rainforests. On the same hand, you could analyse how the combination of these systems are effected by climate change and phenomena such as natural disasters.
Careers may include roles in environmental monitoring, off-shore engineering, renewable energy, and humanitarian aid.

What are the causes of the various large scale global environmental issues like climate change? Can we identify options to solve these issues? Are options different in different countries? The global challenges with respect to environment and sustainability are huge and can only be addressed in an interdisciplinary approach. Read more
Sustainable use or conservation of the earth's resources requires the organisation, exploitation and integration of technologies such as database management, image processing and digital cartography, to ensure provision of high quality, reliable and up-to-date information. Read more
Our Climate and Atmospheric Science MRes will prepare you in the physical sciences and mathematics for a research career in climate, atmospheric or environmental sciences. Read more
Many countries have a significant legacy of contaminants in the ground, caused by industrial and mining activity. These pollutants can pose a significant risk to human health and the environment, so a particular expertise is needed to deal with these contaminated sites. Read more
We engage in fundamental research in atmospheric science, both independently and in cooperation with federal and provincial laboratories and other research groups around the world. Read more
Society urgently needs experts with a multidisciplinary education in atmospheric and Earth System sciences. Climate change, urban air quality and extreme weather are matters of global concern which science cannot yet completely explain. Read more
The University of Worcester welcomes applications to undertake research towards MPhil and PhD degrees in Atmospheric Science. Research at Worcester has grown significantly in the last 10 years as the University itself has expanded. Read more
Geotechnical engineering examines the engineering behaviour of earth materials and is relevant to all engineering and construction practices that are concerned with the ground on both a surface level and within it. Read more
A CUSTOMISABLE, IN-DEPTH AND PRACTICAL ANALYSIS OF OUR CHANGING PLANET The MSc in Geology at Aarhus University is a flexible, research-centred programme that encourages students to explore their own interests both in the lab and in the field. Read more
