Our research program crosses the spectrum of the earth sciences and crosses the globe. We not only study problems in central Indiana, but other areas of the U.S., the ocean, and other continents.

Active research groups reflect not only the interests of our faculty, but also the interests of our graduate students and the needs for research and training on local to global scales.

Some research is completed by individual faculty members, while other research is carried out collaboratively among several faculty members and with the help of graduate and undergraduate students. Common collaborations used to carry out our research program include the Department of Geography, School of Dentistry, Center for Earth and Environmental Science, and Center for Environmental Health.
