Earth system research 2025: Climate system & georesources
As a result of a detailed self-description and external expert advice based on this, the Department of Geosciences held a comprehensive strategy discussion on the future direction of its research and teaching perspectives and summarized the result under the heading “Earth System Research 2025: Climate System and Georesources” in a strategy paper, which was published at the end of February 2020 was presented to the Executive Board of the University of Hamburg.
The department's new research strategy aims to accentuate its profile and the further development of overarching earth system research that is committed to the university's sustainability model, which is committed to the model of a habitable earth and a globe that is worth maintaining inhabitable conditions. The thematic focuses that are intended to bring together the different research topics are, in addition to the already well-accented climate research, the topic of georesources as a new focus.
The department sees the breadth of disciplines represented at the location in a total of eight institutes as a particular strength, which enable holistic earth system research. The interdisciplinary orientation and global networking of the diverse research activities as well as the successful involvement in the Excellence Cluster CLICCS already make the department an internationally renowned research location for climate, environment and earth system research. We hope to be able to expand this spectrum in the future to include the important field of georesource research and are currently promoting support for this realignment.
