They seek to explain how the people and places on our planet are intricately connected. Their work impacts how we stay healthy, interact with water, and remain resilient in the face of natural disasters. They seek knowledge of how climate change is affecting the natural world and share the know-how that is driving tools like geospatial technology. These stories represent just a fraction of the great work that is happening in the Department of Geography and in collaborations across the university when we put the planet — and our relationship with its places — front and center.
