About this course

The track Geo-ecological Dynamics deepens the student's knowledge of the different processes which play an important role in the functioning of geo-ecological systems.

Students deal with complex relationships between biogeochemical and geomorphological processes in terrestrial and adjacent aquatic ecosystems, and the influences of climate change and direct human impact. These relationships will be studied at different scales: from a molecular to a global level.
