Earth Science - Education

We conduct research in diverse regions ranging from the tallest mountain peaks of the Himalayas, the wilderness of Antarctica, to the vast unexplored 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 members of the National Academy of Sciences, and several winners of the UCSB Distinguished Teaching Award), students discover the unfolding planetary drama of which they are part.
