The Geosciences research theme is leading research in earth and environmental systems over a range of spatial and temporal scales. They investigate patterns and processes within the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere to make inferences about past, present and future change. They engage in fundamental and applied research with a strong focus on resource and environmental management, biodiversity, risk mitigation and ecosystem restoration. 4 sub-themes summarise their range of activities: biogeography; environmental reconstruction; informatics; water resources.
