Geology Department We totally rock!

Geology offers an integrative, scientific avenue of study for managing our interactions with the environment, providing adequate resources, ensuring the safety of the built environment in the face of natural hazards, and solving the complex history of earth and its continuing evolution. The Geology Department makes extensive use of the extraordinary geology of the Appalachians and other locales around the globe, including Hawai'i, Utah, Belize, the Florida Keys, American Southwest, New Zealand, and Greece. We also offer many opportunities for research using scientific computing, field programs, laboratory analyses, and GIS mapping. Click here for a list of all geo-related talks.
