Facilities

The Department of Earth Sciences (DES) maintains facilities for pursuing a wide range of teaching and research studies. Some of these facilities are shared with other academic departments or research centers, whereas some are maintained solely by departmental personnel. Use the navigation to the left to read about facilities for specific types of studies. Keep in mind that the interdisciplinary nature of DES creates opportunities for crossing disciplinary boundaries and innovative use of tools and resources. Creative and useful applications of facilities are encouraged.
