This course will equip you with both the analytical problem solving skills of the mathematician and a deep understanding of Geography and its increasing importance in modern society. You will benefit from the formal and rigorous approach of mathematics and from the clear presentation of core geographical principles. The study of mathematics will deepen your understanding of a range of geographical subjects including environmental modelling (including the modelling of the meteorology and climate, hydrological flows, flooding and sediment transport, biogeography etc). In turn, such modelling allows reconstructions of, for example, past glacial environments, and attempts at forecasting hazards such as flooding and volcanic activity. Further areas of geography that benefit from an enhanced knowledge of mathematics include the topographical surveys and the analysis of such spatial data (we are particularly active with regard to GIS, GPS and the use of an unmanned aerial vehicle allowing low altitude remote sensing).
