EOAS unites faculty, researchers, and graduate students studying Earth’s interior, continents, oceans, atmosphere, and biosphere, their interactions through Earth history, and their effects on human civilization today. From the Jersey Shore to ancient Australia, from deep-sea vents to the open ocean, from the Antarctic to the asteroid belt, EOAS research spans worlds. Our scientists bring together field observations, geological and biological sampling, state-of-the-art laboratory analysis, and advanced computation to investigate some of the most pressing scientific challenges of the twenty-first century. EOAS students learn how Earth works as an integrated system. Rutgers alumni in EOAS disciplines have become leaders in research, teaching, sustainable business, and environmental policy.
