Geological and Environmental Sciences

Geological and Environmental Sciences

Who are we?
Geology is the study of processes occurring in or on Earth. Environmental science is the study of interactions within the Earth's biosphere, concentrating on natural and man-made perturbations such as pollution. Disciplines within the Geological and Environmental Sciences are directed toward understanding the terrestrial system from the core of the Earth to beyond our solar system. Students will conduct applied and basic research in an effort to understand physical processes on and within the Earth, and human influences that affect the environment.
