Climate, Carbon & GeobiologyClimate, Carbon & Geobiology
From land-water-atmosphere-biosphere interactions and climate dynamics to the carbon cycle, our research covers all aspects of climate from past to present. Our geobiology research ranges from biotic changes through time and evolutionary morphology and systematics to geomicrobiology.
 
Energy GeosciencesEnergy Geosciences
From subsurface basin analysis and reservoir characterization to reservoir geophysics and energy policy, we focus on hydrocarbon energy research ranging from the traditional to the cutting-edge, as well as the environmental effects of resource extraction on water and land use.
 
Marine GeosciencesMarine Geosciences
From tectonics at active plate margins to clastic sedimentation and carbonate systems in the marine environment, our research encompasses a wide range of marine geology and geophysics. Our researchers also study the interactions between oceanography and climate with tectonic and sedimentary systems and use a variety of techniques to past ...
 
Planetary SciencesPlanetary Sciences
Our research program is working to make the Jackson School of Geosciences one of the world's leading centers for planetary research. Scientists in the planetary theme are exploring geology across the solar system, with special emphasis on the Moon, Earth, Mars, asteroids, and icy satellites. JSG researchers combine mission involvement, ...
 
Solid Earth & Tectonic ProcessesSolid Earth & Tectonic Processes
From plate tectonic and deformation processes to mantle evolution and dynamics and melt generation and volcanism, our research spans the range of tectonics and deep crustal processes.
 
Surface & Hydrologic ProcessesSurface & Hydrologic Processes
From watersheds and aquifers to source-to-sink sediment transport and land surface dynamics, our research focuses on processes that shape the Earth's surface, the rock record results, and interaction with hydrologic systems.
