Earth Sciences - Our research areas

Department research activity spans diverse topics designed to investigate the past, present and future of Planet Earth and its resources. Our research work ranges from ground-breaking blue-sky research, to very applied projects with high societal impact deliverables for industrial and government sponsors.

For convenience, our research activities have been divided into the three main themes highlighted below. As in any successful research environment, as well as the research done under these simple groupings, much research happens as internal collaborations between members of these groups and external collaborations at many other high-ranking research institutes globally.

Geodynamics and Sedimentary Systems

Physical and Chemical Earth processes

Global Environmental Change


We also have a number of individual research groups within the department
