About Us

Our Vision: As a world leader in Earth and environmental sciences and engineering, we will create, integrate, and transform fundamental understanding of Earth processes, and use that knowledge to help provide energy, water, and a safe and sustainable planet.

Our Mission: To create and effectively disseminate fundamental knowledge about Earth, its resources, and the processes by which it changes; to train students and future leaders, and educate the broader public in the Earth and environmental sciences; and to integrate, synthesize, and apply scientific and engineering knowledge to societal problems, such as the sustainable use of energy and water resources, the identification and mitigation of risks posed by natural hazards, and the consequences of human activities on the environment.
