We study the impacts of climate on our environment, changes in Earth's surface, methods of earthquake detection and other natural hazards.
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 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.
