This module explores key areas of scientific investigation along the cutting edge of the Physical Geography and Environmental Science disciplines. It instigates the transition of students into research, considering environmental questions of global and regional concern, the theories and concepts that underpin our knowledge base, and state-of-the-art scientific investigations within these areas. It encourages new researchers to explore, apply and critically assess current understanding and consider the direction these disciplines will take into the future to address environmental challenges at varying spatial and temporal scales. This will provide the foundation for researchers to develop future specialisation and expertise within chosen areas of environmental research.
