About

The objective of the Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at The University of Edinburgh is to understand and predict Global Environmental Change. We study how ice, oceans, atmosphere, land surface and biosphere have interacted in the past, we probe their current processes, and we develop predictions of their future dynamics. 

Overview

Human impacts on our planet are changing the atmosphere, climate, ice cover, global biogeochemistry, biodiversity, soils, and even ocean circulation. This puts Global Change at the centre of the international scientific agenda.

A key aim of the Global Change Group is to forecast the nature of change in the Earth System. This relies on understanding the building blocks of the system, represented by the Group's programmes: Atmosphere, Biosphere, Cryosphere, Continents, and Oceans.

Opportunities

These Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences programmes from The University of Edinburgh involve fieldwork, monitoring, experimentation, theory and simulation, designed to determine how the earth's systems work, how they operated in the past and where they are going in the future.

The Global Change Research Group is organised around five programmes, each with its own separate web page. You can find them under Atmosphere (Global Change), Biosphere (Global Change), Continents (Global Change), Cryosphere (Global Change) and Oceans (Global Change). For more information, please refer to the web page.

Programme Structure

  • Research students have access to an exceptionally wide range of masters taught and research-training courses offered by the broad interdisciplinary interests within the School.
  • In collaboration with the College's Transkills unit, we also provide generic courses specific to research student needs and requirements.
  • We encourage all our students to undertake demonstrating and tutoring work for the School's undergraduate programmes, for which appropriate training is given.
