Master of Science in Environmental Geology and Geohazards, UiO
Increasing human interaction with nature and extensive exploitation of natural resources lead to environmental conflicts and may cause severe enviromental contamination and deterioration.
The Department of Geosciences has a broad research profile in groundwater flow, contaminant transport and remediation, based on laboratory and field experiments as well as on computer simulations.
In the area of geohazards, the Department, together wth ICG, offer courses and thesis research opportunities related to landslides and debris flows, underwater slides, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis and hazard and risk assessment. Extensive international cooperation makes it possible to analyse case studies and mitigation measures from all parts of the world. In developing countries the occurrence of natural disasters is a main obstacle to progress and the raising of living standard.
