Programme aims

The Master degree in Physics of the Earth System trains graduates with a solid grounding in physics and mathematics, a specific advanced knowledge in dynamics of continuum media (fluids, elastic and visco-elastic solids, multi-phase systems) in relation to physical phenomena affecting the Earth System. The range of subjects taught is wide, enabling students to gain an overall perspective by studying major phenomena stemming from the interaction between the atmosphere, hydrosphere and solid Earth, or else opt for more specific training in fluid Earth or solid Earth physics. The programme is… Read more
