The foundation of a university department is to examine a broad spectrum of topics and disciplines. This is crucial to ensure an adequate, prospective and up-to-date training of undergraduate and graduate students. At our department, the research units comprise such a diversified geoscientific expertise, crossing the classical disciplines. This diversity is also apparent in the research profile of the entire department ranging from deep crustal and mantle studies to near-surface and surface related studies. Nevertheless, the expertise of the individual units meet at some central topics, reflecting the main directions of research at our department. These central topics are Earth’s surface processes, geohazards, as well as resources, and geomaterials.
