Applied Geography (AG) is a long-established group, which since 1994 all members have worked in collaboration. Joint activity is conducted under specific challenges and strategic objectives, with several complementary topics enhancing mutual strengths. structural topics: quality of life, biodiversity, sustainability and risks. AG is organized according to 3 research lines.
- Environmental dynamics in natural landscapes influenced by natural and human factors (human landscape on ecological systems, climate change). Topics addressed: biodiversity, sustainability/risk.
- Urban dynamics in high and medium density areas (allocation of services and green urban areas, impacts on cities -Big Data- and in urban interphase territories -wildland fires-, social economic activity and economic spaces). Topics addressed: quality of life and biodiversity.
- Structural systems dynamics relating population and sustainability (mobility, public spaces, health, ageing and infant population, natural ventilation, soil sealing and energy saving, noise). Topics addressed: quality of life, sustainability/risk.
