Geographical research activities in Tübingen are concentrating on obtainment of a process-based knowlegde and on an understanding of landscape development and its interrelations with natural and anthropogenic factors. The focus lies on all processes that are relevant regarding space (geosphere) and respective mechanisms, which are important against the background of any research on “geo-resources” that again are central objects of geographical research in Tübingen. In consideration of relations and interactions of man and environment the work groups in physical and human geograpgy are closely working together.
