Ours is a vibrant, cohesive department aimed at the highest standards of scholarship. Faculty and students at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels pursue studies that address fundamental questions in the Earth and environmental sciences, spanning deep geological timescales to human timescales. Our research programs are well-funded. Projects are supported by state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and instrumentation, including computational infrastructure, and they are topically and geographically diverse. Current projects are underway in many parts of the U.S., Asia, South America, Iceland and Antarctica, and include field, laboratory, analytical and modeling components.
