Department of Geography

Research and Educational Activities

The research activities at the Department are related to physical geography, human geography, cartography and geoinformatics. We combine the individual disciplines; the resulting multidisciplinary approach is applied in our main research projects: Dynamic Geovisualisation in Crises Management (Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, 2005–2011); European Climate of the Past Millennium (MILLENNIUM) (EU project FP-6, 2006–2010); Environmental significance of the woody debris in river ecosystems (Czech Science Foundation, 2008–2011). In addition, the members of the Department cooperate with numerous domestic and foreign institutions. The Department provides education in Bachelor and Master programmes in geography and cartography and in multidisciplinary studies aimed at teacher-training. These programmes cover all basic geographical disciplines. Master studies graduates can extend their scientific qualification in Ph.D. study programme.
