Earth System Science is an interdisciplinary group set up to unite scientists working on the global evolution of the planet. The research is essentially focused on the physical environment of the Earth, its evolution through time, and the interactions between the biosphere and the geosphere.

The group carries out projects in a variety of themes such as global changes, climatology, hydrology, archeology, oceanography biogeochemistry, remote sensing and geophysics. The accent is on two scientific approaches: mathematical modeling and the use of isotopes and trace elements to document biogeochemical processes.
