Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences

Geological phenomena affect our daily lives as well as the future of our planet. Fundamental knowledge in the Earth and planetary sciences has direct bearing on matters of urgent interest to the public, to policy makers, and to other scientists. The threats of a major earthquake in California, a volcanic eruption in the northwestern U.S., or an asteroid impact are ever present. A naturally fluctuating climate is being modified by human activities in ways that we don’t understand with consequences that we cannot predict. Research in Brown University’s Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences advances fundamental knowledge in the earth and planetary sciences
