The Geosciences Research Division (GRD) is home to a diverse set of academics and staff whose interests cover a wide variety of topics in the atmospheric, marine, and solid Earth sciences. In many cases, these topics are cross-disciplinary, but they include essential components of the following core themes: the geochemistry of the solid, liquid and gaseous Earth, cosmochemistry (meteorites, asteroids and other planetary bodies), paleoceanography and paleoclimate, stratigraphy and sedimentology, geobiology and paleoecology, global and regional tectonics, paleomagnetism, and hydrogeology.

Research activities encompass modeling studies, laboratory experiments, and field-based expeditions, including ship-time.
