Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences - Climate Geography

Topics for Theses

Below you find proposals concerning possible topics for theses - some of which can be "tailored" for master and bachelor theses regarding the different issues investigated within climate geography and grouped by superordinated fields. Further, modified, and similar topics regarding the research priorities of the department can be discussed and facilitated together depending on your request. For requests in that regard please contact the relevant personnel of the climate geography department. Our central topics are:


Topics regarding Snow, Glaciers and Climate
