The state of our physical environment affects our livelihood and well-being. Our common sustainable future depends on how we understand and manage environmental changes that occur in all spatial and temporal time scales. In this research cluster, we engage multidisciplinary initiatives and collaborate with emerging countries to study physical landscape and environmental changes. Using our cutting-edge research outcomes, we explore and provide sustainable solutions to our changing environments. Our research projects aim to:
(1) understand local and global changes in geological past and in human history;
(2) apply the latest field monitoring techniques to evaluate ecological well-being and health risk; and
(3) employ high-performance computing to investigate complex hydroclimatic changes.
