Research Themes & Disciplines

Themes

Our research encompasses all parts of the Earth's dynamic system, investigating the linkages between the Earth's interior, surface, hydrosphere, cryosphere, biosphere, and atmosphere, and how the coupling of chemical, physical, biological, and geological processes shape the evolution of Earth and impact society. Our research themes are unconventional in that they blend deep time and present day, investigating the longer term consequences of short term processes.
