We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
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.

Soils underpin the sustainability of all land based ecosystems on our planet. They impact fluxes of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, can mediate the impact of pollutants, provide biological habitats, and are an important component of water cycling. 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
This master is a two-year programme jointly organised by KU Leuven and Ghent University. You’ll receive in-depth training in the various fields of geology and develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills needed to work in interdisciplinary teams addressing complex geological problems. Read more
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
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
The Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) offers a large number of Master's programmes(overseen by our Graduate School of Science and Engineering).
