GRADUATE STUDIES
EARTH SYSTEMS SCIENCE

Global Ecosystem Focus
Data from remote sensing and field studies are combined with computer models to address such topics as tropical deforestation, impacts of land use and air pollution on ecosystems, and the role of the oceans in regulating global climate.

Degree programs: M.S. in Earth Science (geochemical systems specialization), Ph.D. in Earth and Environmental Sciences

RESEARCH FOCI

Global biogeochemical cycles;
The role of terrestrial and ocean ecosystems in the global carbon dioxide budget;
Detecting and modeling ecosystem stress and land-use change;
Energy and environmental policy studies.
