The Earthsystems PhD Program gathers a multidisciplinary group of scientists with a common interest in Earth processes: their control of climate in different time scales; their influence on natural resources distribution and characteristics; their effect on major natural hazards; and their impact on sustainable development. The program covers integrated Earth System Studies, with a focus on quantitative research in topics such as “Climate Change”, “Earth Resources”, “Natural Hazards” and “Ocean Frontiers”.
EARTHSYSTEMS is led by IDL and originally included contributions from IDL, the Centers of Geology (GeGUL), Oceanography (MARE) and Statistics (CEAUL), all at ULisboa, the LARSYS Associate Laboratory (through the Centre of IMAR of the University of the Azores and CREMINER/FCUL), and the Portuguese Institute for the Ocean and Atmosphere (IPMA). The first edition of the program started on January 2014.
