Two New EAS Faculty Searches in Progress

The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) at Cornell is focused on understanding the nature and evolution of our home planet by applying the basic principles of mathematics, physics, and chemistry. EAS hosts frontier research on a wide variety of processes which drive the solid earth, the oceans, and the atmosphere. From geohazards to critical resources, from the origin of mountains to the origin of megastorms, from the inner core to the edge of space, from reading the geological record of ancient earth to forecasting meteorological threats to future earth, the scientists and students of EAS use the latest technologies while traveling the globe to probe our physical environment. We are dedicated to training the next generation of global leaders in earth and atmospheric sciences while promoting a citizenry informed on the science behind the important environmental and hazard issues of our time.
