Data Center Description
The Department of Geosciences at Princeton University serves as the central focus for the earth, atmospheric, oceanographic, and environmental sciences at Princeton. As such we encompass a rich diversity of scientific expertise and initiative that ranges, for example, from the measurement and modeling of global climatic change, to high-pressure mineral physics, to seismic tomographic imaging of the mantle under the continents, to analysis of the tectonics of Venus.
Research within the department includes:
-Tectonics, Structural Geology, and Petrology -Seismology and Computational Geodynamics -Paleontology and Earth History -Environmental Chemistry and Biogeochemical Cycles -Molecular Geochemistry and Mineral Physics -Biological, Physical, and Chemical Oceanography -Physics and Chemistry of Atmosphere and Meteorology
