Earth Sciences

Our researchers are broadly divided into three research groups: solid: earth and ocean science investigates magmatic and hydrothermal processes, subsurface and mantle geodynamics, and the development and sedimentology of sedimentary basins; living: earth and ocean science considers the processes on the Earth's surface, including in and under its oceans, where life has evolved and profoundly affected environments over billions of years; changing: earth and ocean science considers the causes and consequences of changes in the Earth system, in the ocean, atmosphere and on land, from the geological past into the present and future.
