Research focus at the chair of Physical Geography and Quantitative Methods

Research activities are mainly focussed on three different areas: Climate Research, Landscape Research, and Biogeography. In particular Climate Research with main emphasis on Climate Dynamics and Climate Change has an outstanding importance being reflected in a well-established Climate Research Group. For all of the research areas there is a strong association to the Environment Science Center at the University of Augsburg. Within the Faculty of Applied Computer Sciences there are connections to the Center of Competence for Innovating Technologies (research area Organic Computing). Furthermore, the Chair of Physical Geography has a share in the Augsburg Linux Compute Cluster put up at the Department of Physics.
