Our Research

We explore, discover, and train students in integrative and interdisciplinary Geoscience, including tectonics, geophysics, climate and surface dynamics, and earth materials and geochemistry. Our graduates pursue careers in research and education, energy and mineral resources, environmental policy, and many other areas. Our department maintains active research projects and student training opportunities with our partners at ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, Chevron, Freeport-McMoRan, Newmont, BHP among others. We work together in research, teaching, and outreach with UA and international collaborators.
