The Department of Earth Sciences is engaged in world-class research into the processes at work on and within the Earth and planets. We seek to understand the past through investigation and understanding in terms of the laws of physics, chemistry and biology. Graduate students benefit from our welcoming environment and cutting-edge facilities, including the UK’s only NASA Regional Planetary Image Facility and access to the University of London Observatory, and the UCL Hazard Centre. The department has strong links with resources and hazard risk industries, with most graduates finding employment within academia or geoscience-related industries.
