Global environmental change and geohazards are threatening resources and environmental predictability that human societies rely on. The ASE researchers work towards goals such as:

  • Better sea level rise risk assessment for the millions of people living in low elevation coastal zones
  • Sustainable management of tropical peatlands for fire and haze prevention, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions
  • Improved forecasts of the magnitude and character of volcanic and earthquake activity
  • Risk assessment of unprecedented weather patterns created by climate change
  • Understanding the response of tropical marine and terrestrial ecosystems to global warming, ocean acidification, deforestation, biodiversity loss etc.
