Research Areas and Grad Students

Our research probes phenomena as diverse as the nature of the earth's core to the physics of the outermost atmosphere. We train our students to become future international leaders in both academe and industry by teaching a mixture of basic and applied science. Earth is our laboratory, but we are also motivated by the interdisciplinary nature of our campus and its collegial atmosphere. We are geographically positioned to explore the Finger Lakes region where glacial movement changed its terrain.

The EAS Global Research Map pinpoints areas around the world where our research takes place.

Research Areas

The vast number of disciplines within our fields of atmospheric and geological sciences encourages unique and valuable department and campus-wide cross-collaboration. This is reflected in the individual pages of our research areas.

Grad Students: EAS

Our graduate students have the distinct opportunity to exchange ideas with peers outside of the scope of their studies in our joint learning environment.
