Research Theme: Land Surface

Here is an atmospheric-level view of all the Land Surface
research and happenings at INSTAAR.

How land is shaped and changed over time is the subject of this research. It seeks to understand why landscapes look and operate as they do, describe the processes that create landforms, and predict future changes.
