Our research programs cover the full extent of the geosciences — from microbiology to seismology.

We focus on deep scientific problems and timely issues associated with the well-being of our society and our planet. These include climate change, energy and water resources, natural hazards, land surface processes, environmental remediation and planetary habitability.

Our research projects take our faculty and students to international destinations for field courses and excursions, including Jordan, Mexico, Chad, China, Korea, Cameroon, the Bahamas, Denmark, Spain, India and Turkey.
