Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences, California Institute of Technology

Data Center Description
In the division of Geological and Planetary Sciences, students and
faculty in the Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences study the
earth and planets to understand their origin, constitution, and
development, and the effect of the resulting physical and chemical
environments on the history of life, and on humanity. The approach to
these problems relies strongly on the basic sciences. Programs of
study and research are pursued in environmental science and
engineering, geology, geobiology, geochemistry, geophysics, and
planetary science. The curriculum is flexible so that students with
degrees in biology, chemistry, engineering, or physics may carry out
graduate work within the division. Interdisciplinary studies are
encouraged and students may carry out academic and research programs
within and between different divisions.
