University of Bergen's Physical Geography offers a wide range of master’s projects related to past and present climate and environmental changes in Norway:
- Natural hazards (floods, storminess, storm floods, snow avalanches etc.)
- Sea level changes
- Hydrology and ground water
- Periglacial processes and features
- Caves and landscape development
We use several methods including equipment for coring of lakes, access to sediment analyses, and laboratory for Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS).
As a master’s student in Physical Geography, you can contribute to societal safety and planning related to settlement, transport, water supply, and climate and energy transformation.
You will learn relevant skills for your master project through fieldwork, laboratory and theoretical courses, and an inclusive and informal social environment awaits you at the Department of Geography.
