Congratulations to Bruce Luyendyk on being named an AAAS Fellow! This recognition is testament to Bruce's myriad contributions to our field over the course of his illustrious career.

Ben Byerly and a team of researchers has been featured in the UCSB Current, at the news website Edhat and in the journal Geology for their discovery of crystals that formed earlier than 4 billion years ago in the Barberton Mountains of South Africa.

UCSB has been ranked number 5 by US New & World Report in their 2019 list of public universites.

World Class Research & Education

We conduct research in diverse regions ranging from the tallest mountain peaks of the Himalayas, the wilderness of Antarctica, to the vast undiscovered depths of the ocean floor. Our graduate and undergraduate students participate directly in the excitement of exploring terra incognita. Taught by a distinguished and dedicated faculty (including several members of the National Academy of Sciences, and winners of the UCSB Distinguished Teaching Award), students discover the unfolding planetary drama of which they are part.
