As a Master's student of Earth Sciences, you will study the natural processes and cycles of the Earth's system within and between rock, soil, water, living things and air. You will quantify the magnitude and rate of these processes in both space and in time. You will look at the influence of humanity on the Earth's Systems to address questions such as: What can past and present elemental fluxes tell us about the future? How can we use earth system knowledge to effectively address global challenges such as climate change?
