Overview

The program offers graduate students personal guidance (typical of a relatively small department) with the field, laboratory, and computing facilities and resources that accompany a much larger Earth Sciences department.  Within this context, you will find a healthy combination of both field- and model-based Earth Science research as well as applied and academic research opportunities.  

Our faculty offer courses and are active in the following specific research areas:  air quality, applied climatology, applied geophysics, biogeochemistry, climate change, coastal geology, emerging diseases, environmental geology, epidemiology, fluvial processes, geospatial analysis, GIS/geo-computation, groundwater hydrology, land change dynamics, landscape ecology, marine geology, mineralogy and geochemistry, numerical modeling, paleoecology, paleontology, quaternary geology, remote sensing, renewable energies, sedimentology, severe weather, soil science, stratigraphy, structural geology, sustainability, tropical cyclones, urban ecology, volcanology, and weather forecasting.
