The Department

B5c et B5a

The AGO Department includes about one hundred researchers in Astrophysics, Geophysics and Oceanography. The interests are multiple : monitoring and analysis of climate and oceans, study of planets and small bodies in our solar system and other planetary systems, modeling and observations of stars in our Galaxy, analysis of galactic and extragalactic structures such as quasars... not to mention cosmology and the study of fundamental particles. Tools useful for this research are developed, often in close collaboration with the "Centre Spatial de Liège". The AGO department actively participates in worldwide projects and several of its members play an active role within international bodies.

In parallel, the AGO department offers three graduate Masters: a master in Space Sciences, a master in Climatology and a master in Oceanography. In addition, about thirty doctoral students pursue their research within the AGO Department.

Knowledge sharing and outreach activities are part of the traditions of the department. On this site you will also find educational material, a calendar of upcoming conferences and seminars, as well as the latest news from the Cosmos.
