Universidade Federal Fluminense, Niteroi, Brazil

Universidade Federal Fluminense is located in Niteroi, east side of Gunabara Bay, connect from Rio de Janeiro city by 13 km brigde. The main areas of research definied by CAPES (the authority in charge for degree of post garduated courses), related to
CNRD is Postgraduated course (MsC and PhD) in Geography and Geochemistry. In Geography the main areas is geotechonologies, enviromentment management, landscape evolution. In geochemistry the main interests are pollution, geochronology, biogeochemistry.

The Institute of Geosciences support three departments: Geology, Environmental sciences and Gepgraphy. Only Geology and Gepography provides postgraduated courses. The Post Graduated course in Geogrphy is focus on environmental management using GIS, Remote Sensing, Field experiments. Recently we include themes as Global Changes, including Anthropocene.
