Limnology, Coastal Oceanography, Biogeochemistry
We study structures and functions of limnological systems under various climatic schemes in the world. Research and education will be focused on the interaction between ecosystem and aquatic environments through material transports in lakes and rivers of various climatic zones, effects and mechanisms of human impacts on the aquatic environments and their protection, influences of atmospheric and geospheric events, etc.
