Biogeoscience is the study of the processes in and interactions among the Earth’s atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and geosphere.

There are two key elements in the study of biogeoscience: Biogeophysics, the processes associated with the movement of water, mass, and energy within and across ecosystems; Biogeochemistry, the processes related to the cycling of elements within and across ecosystems.

The field of biogeoscience therefore provides the scientific basis for understanding the role of terrestrial and aquatic processes in some of today’s most pressing environmental issues, including climate change, deforestation, eutrophication of lakes and rivers, and the effect of sea level rise on coastal and estuarine ecosystems.

The program is a community of faculty and students whose research interests converge at the boundaries of traditional natural science disciplines. The program emphasizes interdisciplinary research and coursework, focusing on the biogeochemistry and biogeophysics of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, with faculty and students drawn from the Departments of Biology, Earth & Environment, and Archaeology.

Faculty in the Departments of Biology, Earth & Environment, and Archaeology have unique strengths in biophysical interactions and biogeochemical processes at the land-ocean and land-atmosphere interfaces, making BU a natural home for a program of this nature. The Department of Biology has faculty expertise in ecosystem science, biogeochemistry, plant biology, and microbial ecology. The Department of Earth & Environment includes faculty expertise in biogeochemistry, hydrology and the geomorphology of land and coastal systems, physics of land-atmosphere interaction, physiological ecology, and remote sensing. The Department of Archaeology includes faculty expertise in paleobotany, paleoclimate, and agricultural innovation. The goal of the program is to integrate faculty and student research interests across the three departments.

Graduate Certificate Program Requirements

Upon admission to the Certificate Program, students are required to complete 16 credits of coursework. Of these, 12 credits require successful completion of three 4-credit courses, one in each of three focal areas: Biogeophysics; Biogeochemistry; Methods in Biogeoscience.
