Teaching and research

The Chair of Physical Geography at the KU focuses primarily on topics in geomorphology and hydrology, as well as questions related to environmental processes and natural hazards. We ensure that there are close links between our research and teaching – by offering our students the opportunity to participate in practical courses that are related to our current research projects, for example. We place great importance on providing our students with thorough training in how to use state-of-the-art equipment and methods of analysis. The following information is available on our English website:
