About

The graduate degree program in the School of Earth Sciences at the The Ohio State University provides students the opportunity to develop advanced professional training in the Earth and Environmental Sciences and Geodetic Science.

Overview

We are concerned with the responsible utilization of natural resources, issues of sustainability, as well as the mitigation of natural and manmade hazards and 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, in situ and laboratory measurements, physical theories, and numerical models. We conduct field work worldwide from Antarctica to the Arctic and from coral reefs to mountain peaks.

Our scientific activities and interests span an enormous range of temporal and spatial scales. 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 in the Earth Sciences programme at the The Ohio State University.

Mission Statement

  • To advance our understanding of Earth as a dynamic and complex system, its past and present evolution, and its resources and vulnerabilities
  • To assess human impact on the Earth system, and the implications of global change for the biosphere, society, and regional and global economies.
  • To educate the next generation of scientists, researchers, teachers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and environmental professionals.
  • To promote a better informed populace within the state of Ohio, our nation, and worldwide.
