The University is open, although some faculty and staff continue to work remotely. For assistance please visit our people page.
Your support is critical to our success. Gifts to the Department of Geography and Geosciences help us continue our exceptional research and will support the development of outstanding graduates and professionals.
Drs. Gaughan and Stevens, along with UofL graduate students, work with an interdisciplinary team to study how communities and their households, land use, and climate interact to create or mitigate vulnerability in the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Area of Southern Africa. The primary outcomes of this work makes important contributions to advancing the land system science field by conducting a comparison of land use/land cover change in the broader context of socio-ecological vulnerability for Africa’s largest transboundary conservation area.

A new collaboration will bring together Geography and Geoscience and Biology faculty with foresters from Berea College. Drs. Rochner, Gaughan, Stevens, and Gunter will work with colleagues from UofL Biology and Berea College Forestry to examine the influence of controlled burning on forest biodiversity and productivity, local wind patterns, and more. Look for more information to come as fieldwork to collect initial sets of pre-burn data is underway.
