Earth and Planetary Science

In our department, we explore interactions between physical, chemical and biological processes that dictate the evolution and properties of the Earth and other planet systems. We try to better understand these complex systems using theoretical, laboratory, field and remote sensing approaches. We study topics that are in the core Earth and Planetary Sciences as well as topics that are linked to other disciplines such as ecology, biology and health.
