Earth Sciences Publications

 

Research in the Department of Earth Sciences is organized into four broad and wide-ranging themes: Earth Evolution Surface Life and Climate, Earth and Planetary Systems, Resource Geoscience and Tectonic Processes and Crustal Dynamics. These themes capture the wide range of research activities across the faculty.
