MSc/PhD in Alpine Geography

Institute for Geosciences and Environmental Research (IGE) conducts research on climate, the water cycle, cryosphere and natural and anthropized environments. The main themes defining the scientific identity of IGE are:

  • The past and present evolution of the composition of the atmosphere and the feedback between atmospheric chemistry and climate
  • The role of polar areas in the functioning of the climate system
  • Study of glaciers and mountain hydro-glacio-meteorological processes
  • Multiscale circulation in the ocean, biogeochemical transport and exchanges between the ocean and related environments
  • Processes and vulnerability of the Critical Zone for better management and protection of the resource and the environment
  • The intensification of the hydrological cycle and its interactions with societies
