The faculty and students of the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences are dedicated to the study of a myriad of physical and chemical processes over various spatial and temporal scales that range from diverse topics as plate tectonics to asteroid impacts to tornadoes. 
As the multidisciplinary department within the College of Science, EAPS utilizes skills and technology from mathematics, physics, chemistry, statistics, and computer sciences to research problems that affect our socio-economic well-being as well as the delicate balance of weather, climate, and earth processes.  The department taps into state-of-the-art computer and laboratory facilities for calculation, visualization, and experimentation to faciliate our research. Moreover, our faculty, students, and staff are dedicated to increasing the impact of our department on our local and global communities in decades to come. 

I welcome you to contact myself or other faculty in the department if you are interested in learning more about the research and impacts our department has had within the earth, atmospheric, and planetary sciences.
