Our research

Our broad, multidisciplinary research integrates the physical and social sciences of climate science, meteorology and geoscience. We are making important contributions to creating more just societies and more sustainable environments.

Research prospectus

Faculty of Science researchers conduct diverse and varied research in our state-of-the-art facilities. Our scientists are global leaders in their fields, finding solutions to the biggest issues we face today.

The research within the School of Geography, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences is built upon extensive expertise in geography, geoscience and atmospheric science, ranging from the social sciences through to the quantitative physical sciences. In addition to discipline expertise, we have strength in a number of multi-disciplinary areas including: climate change; resource futures; space, place and social change; environmental hazards; indigenous knowledges and Earth system interactions.
