Geodynamics/Geophysics/Geochemistry/Mineral Physics/Petrology

The study of dynamic processes within the Earth and on the surface of Earth and other planets is the subject of numerous research programs and academic courses in which the Department and the facilities of two affiliated institutes, CIRES and LASP, are closely interrelated. The interdepartmental Geophysics Ph.D. Program links expertise in geophysics across the campus
