Earth Sciences

ES


The Department of Earth Sciences at UCL lies in the heart of London on the Bloomsbury campus. Our research spans a diverse range of activities including: crustal processes, Earth and planetary evolution, mineral physics, palaeobiology and palaeoclimatology, polar observation and modelling, natural hazards, environmental geochemistry and sedimentology.

Our teaching, reflecting the diversity of our research, encompasses a wide range of undergraduate and taught graduate programmes together with an active body of graduate research students.

The department collaborates closely with neighbouring Birkbeck, University of London through the Institute of Earth & Planetary Sciences.
