Earth Science (F53)
This course explores current aspects of Earth science, investigating how interactions between the Earth's lithosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere are dependent upon each other and interact across a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. You will consider the complexity of interacting systems, investigate how to quantify fluxes within the Earth system, and develop your understanding of the climatic consequences of changing the balance between different components. You will also learn how to communicate scientific information to specialists and non-specialists. The MSc includes taught modules and a compulsory project module, which gives you the opportunity to explore a topic in further depth and to undertake a substantial piece of independent research.
