Research Organisation
Research is one of the most important activities within the Geography Department of Gent university.

  • Topography (Land Surveying): evaluation of error sources and the expected accuracy of instruments and the processing methods used. Investogation of the influence of the atmospheric loading on GPS determined coördinates.
  • Integrated Land Use Planning: mainly focusing on the various aspects of participative and sustainable land use, with due attention paid to production and environmental conditions.
  • Social and Economic Geography: (i) population geography, (ii) location theoretic research, (iii) urban geography and urban policy, (iv) transport geography, and (v) spatial data collection and modelling.
  • Landscape science and Environmental planning:landscape genesis, landscape ecology, landscape planning, landscape architecture and land classification.
  • Marine and Coastal Geomorphology:submarine geomorphology and sediments dynamic on the sandbanks.
  • Society and Space: geographical foundations of the modern world system(Wallerstein), participation of the local communities in the organisation of local environment
  • Physical Geography:terrestrial and marine geomorphology, applied physical geography
  • Remote Sensing and Image Interpretation: mainly focused on landscape science, geomorphology and environmental and soil degradation. The geographical research areas include Belgium, Mediterranean countries, but also areas in other parts of the world.
  • Regional geography and spatial analysis: application fields in land evaluation, development of land information systems, environmental degradation, risk analysis and decision making.
