Undergraduate and graduate students are actively involved in research programs conducted by the Earth Sciences faculty. Research projects may be independent or collaborative in nature, and they range from laboratory investigations to computer modeling to field-based studies. Financial support for student research comes from a number of sources. Earth Sciences students have presented their findings at regional, national, and international meetings, including those of the Geological Society of America (GSA) and American Geophysical Union (AGU). In addition, a number of students are lead authors or co-authors of papers published in professional journals.
