Featured Research

Research in the Department of Geology cuts across all disciplines from surficial processes, to energy resources, to studies of the the deep ocean crust or the planet Mars, to mention but a few. Our research is both basic and applied, is typically funded by external funding agencies (such as NSF, ICCI, USGS), may take place locally or as far afield as Antarctica and the Arctic, and involves both undergraduate and graduate students.

Here are just a few examples of our recent projects.
