Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences
Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences Research
This program studies extreme weather, climate change, and their impacts on both ecosystems and modern society.
This research area uses biology, chemistry, geology, and physics to understand how the Earth System supports such a diversity of live and how human behavior is impacting this system.
This program studies the processes that shape our planet, from the building of mountains and oil-bearing sedimentary basins, to the flow of warm rocks and cold glaciers, to the triggering of earthquakes.
This research area studies the evolution of the solar system and how planets evolve over time due to impacts, tectonics, and atmospheric processes, with an eye to the potential for past and future habitability.
