Earth Systems

Studies of the physical, chemical, and biological processes that integrate to affect dynamics of the Earth, with a view to understanding both forces driving changes to the Earth and ways to mitigate or adapt to such changes. This includes studies of the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, biosphere and anthrosphere (including, eg, economics). Faculty are actively involved in interdisciplinary research across two or more of these spheres.
