To Wednesday 19 September 2018
This year’s Summer School will take place from September 10 through September 19 2018 in Potsdam, Germany. It will address these central questions:
- Why is the Earth Surface System dynamic?
- What are the Triggers for dynamic Processes?
- What are possible societal Adaptation Strategies for Sustainable Land Management?
The fifth summer school event will explore the terrestrial earth surface system which is driven by geological, biological and climatic forces. They form a complex system of closely coupled processes and feedbacks that are not yet sufficiently understood. Knowledge of these interactions is essential since the earth´s surface is the foundation for all human activity. Its dynamics have an impact on all facets of life, habitability and sustainability.
