About Us: Geosciences Today

The Geosciences Department, together with its affiliated inter-departmental programs and institutes, serves as the central focus for the Earth, atmospheric and oceanographic sciences at Princeton. As such we encompass a rich diversity of scientific expertise and initiative that ranges, for example, from the measurement and modeling of biogeochemical cycles and global climatic change, to high-pressure mineral physics, to seismic tomographic imaging of the Earth's interior and the analysis of terrestrial and planetary tectonics.
