Geoscientists at Northwestern University seek to unravel Earth's complex past and present through field observation and laboratory analysis. We study rocks of all sizes from elements and minerals to Earth's deep interior and terrestrial planets. Employing techniques and knowledge from disparate fields such as geology, chemistry, physics, computer science, and mathematics, our research reflects the multidisciplinary character of Earth Science. Our students are immersed in a broad range of disciplines and acquire the observational and technical skills needed to answer geoscientific questions. Faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and students alike are supported by professional office staff.
