Course content

Present-day environmental change is now high on the international agenda but the trajectory of future change, particularly past the end of the present century, is hard to predict with confidence. Academics and researchers within the discipline of Environment, Earth and Ecosystems at the OU have active interests in present-day, anthropogenically driven environmental change from the perspective afforded by our study of the natural changes that have controlled Earth’s environment over its 4.5 billion-year history. Our research is frequently interdisciplinary and is underpinned by the latest methods and approaches in fieldwork and laboratory analysis.
