Students in the EAPS program in geophysics (PG) investigate physical and chemical processes that shape the Earth and other planets, occurring over a broad range of spatial and temporal scales—from crystalline structures to tectonic faults. Harnessing advances in instrumentation and computer power, we combine theory, field work, and precise laboratory experimentation to develop insights on global issues such as geothermal and hydrocarbon energy sources, carbon sequestration, groundwater flow, glacier dynamics, and the earthquake cycle.
