"We think that educating and training our graduate students is arguably the most important activity we are engaged in here in the department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, and we take this responsibility very seriously (while having a good time doing it!)."

– Sandy Carlson

We have strong research programs in both field and laboratory aspects of the earth sciences. Our facilities for research are excellent, and our faculty is committed to active involvement with students in research.
