  • The functioning of natural systems (Geospheres, Pedospheres, Hydrospheres, Biospheres, Atmospheres)
  • Causes of global changes and their regional and global impact
  • Monitoring of global changes by recording water-, material-, mass-, and energy flows at land surfaces
  • The use and development of remote sensing techniques
  • The spatial and integrated modelling of natural systems
  • Programming and use of Geographic information systems
  • The scenario-based, integrated analysis of the regional impact of global change
