Centers, Labs, and Programs

A physical library of geological samples from the seafloor and subseafloor of the world’s oceans.

The Human Ecology Laboratory groups together students and researchers to explore the relationships between people and the environment through time. In particular, the lab focuses on understanding Social Vulnerability related to Climate Change.

The WECLIMA group studies relationships between regionally impactful weather extremes and large-scale climate variability and change. We also collaborate across disciplines to study impacts on public health, ecosystems, water resources, wildfire, energy, and air quality.
