Master colloquium

In the colloquium, current research work from the fields of urban and landscape ecology and climatology will be presented by institute members or invited speakers. In this context, the M.Sc. students should present the background, questions, concepts and results of their planned or ongoing master's theses and discuss them with those present. The colloquium is primarily aimed at students of the master's courses at the Institute of Geography, in particular at students specializing in climatology and urban and landscape ecology. Interested bachelor students are also very welcome.
