Through course work, seminars and labs, you can study such areas as meteorology, earth science, the geology of U.S. national parks, the history of life on earth through the examination of fossils and the evolution of life forms, and many more. Our excellent research labs support your studies in petrophysics, analytical geochemistry, paleontology and GIS-supported geology. Specific resources include reaction cell ICP-MS, XRD, high-resolution TEM, wet labs and research petrographic microscopes. Off-campus electron microprobe and variable pressure SEM facilities are available for in-depth research.
