The Ohio State University, School of Earth Sciences

The faculty and students in the School of Earth Science study the Earth’s interior and surface, its oceans, freshwaters and glaciers, its atmosphere and outer space, and their interactions with each other and with the biosphere.

Our work addresses the sustainable use of natural resources, the mitigation of natural and manmade hazards, and the documentation and forecast of global change. We read Earth’s recent and ancient history in its rocks, fossils, landscapes, and its gravity. We probe and characterize the Earth system using satellites, field-based study, laboratory measurements, and numerical models. Our fieldwork takes us from our backyard in Ohio to Antarctica, tropical coral reefs, and mountain peaks.

We create and disseminate knowledge about our planet, develop new techniques to explore and understand it, and share this knowledge and our technical skills with our colleagues, our students, and society.
