Welcome to the Chair of Land Use Engineering

Our research focuses on spatially explicit optimisation of land use activities, emerging concepts of land-use management (adaptive ecosystem management, precision land-use management), modelling environmental performance of different land-use systems, and risk management of natural hazards.
