Tropical Environmental Change (TEC)

About TEC

The Tropical Environmental Change (TEC) research group in the Department of Geography, NUS, currently comprises around 35 faculty and graduate research students. The interests of group members, though diverse, cluster around the general theme of environmental change, and in particular the dynamic nature of geo-ecological processes and the human dimensions of low latitude (tropical) regimes. Such regimes are amongst the least studied and therefore most poorly understood on Earth. Environmental change is occurring as a result of both non-human (natural) and human (anthropogenic) forces: the pervasiveness and primacy of anthropogenic contributions, and of the critical importance of low latitude environments, to planetary scale-changes on Earth are increasingly accepted.
