In the School of GeoSciences we explore the factors and forces that shape our world and environments in which we live. As a leading interdisciplinary group, we aim to understand the interaction between the Earth's Geology, atmosphere, oceans, biosphere and human responses and roles in this complex interplay. With over 100 academic and research specialists and some of the best scientific infrastructure in the UK, we deliver new insights into the dynamics of the Earth System and its relationship with society. We have over 1100 undergraduate and 250 postgraduate students. Building on existing strengths, the School is developing fruitful new collaborations in grand challenge research and greater innovation in teaching.
