M.Sc. Tropical Forestry and Management

Tropical Forestry and Management is an international Master program offered at the Forest Department of the Technische Universität Dresden.

Faculty of Forest, Geo and Hydro Sciences (Faculty of Environmental Sciences)
M.Sc. Marine Geosciences

The exploration of resources such as hydrocarbons and hydrothermal deposits in the ocean have become increasingly important for the future security of resources. Furthermore, it plays an important role in the study of geodynamical processes and protection of the shores. Beyond that, the ocean is of great importance to the climate system of the Earth as a whole. The changes in the climate system in the past and present can be reconstructed with geoscientific methods. The insights about the dynamics of the system ocean-climate obtained in such a manner represent a basis for modelling calculations used for forecasting of the future climate(s).
