The Department of Geography and Geology, University of Copenhagen, hosts 50 scientists and 45 Ph.D. students covering a broad range of geographical aspects, from human geography to environmental geography, including geomorphology, soil science, hydrology and climatology.

Over the last 15 years the "Terrestrial Ecosystem Analysis" research group from the UCOP has worked with subsurface trace greenhouse gas production andnet emissions to the atmosphere under a variety of climatic environments from Sahel to the Arctic/Antarctic. Research has recently focused on north-east Greenland, European Russia, western Siberia, Svalbard, and Antarctica, aiming for a better understanding of subsurface processes producing greenhouse gasses, and of greenhouse gas budgets.

As part of national, Norden, and EU-funded projects (LAPP, CONGAS, CarboMont, CarboNorth, CarboEuropeIP and NordicPerm), measurements of CO2, CH4 and N2O production rates (laboratory experiments) and emissions (eddy/chambers) have been made in contrasting permafrost-affected environments, including wetlands in north-east Greenland, European Russsia, western Siberia and Antarctica.
