Space, Earth and Environment
As the name suggests, the Department of Space, Earth and Environment addresses major issues. On the one hand, we focus on questions emanating from a long long time ago - the origins of universe, of our planet and of life. On the other hand, we observe what is happening on Earth today and develop methods, tools and models that enable us to look towards the future and find solutions to global challenges about resources, energy supply and environmental impact. Together we work to increase knowledge on how to best achieve a long-term sustainable planet. The department hosts two research infrastructures: Onsala Space Observatory and Chalmers Power Central.
