Earth and Planetary Science
Our ambition is to undertake research which will provide the knowledge that will help address global challenges relating to resources, natural hazards and the environment.
Earth System Science: Crust to Core
The Earth System Science: Crust to Core research group studies how processes operating on all time and length scales interact to generate the key large-scale features of the Earth through deep time to the present.
Edinburgh Earth Resources
The Edinburgh Earth Resources research group studies a wide variety of natural resources from our planet. Our researchers are dedicated to understanding how to utilise these resources responsibly for the benefit of all.
The Edinburgh Geohazards research group brings together expertise in Natural Hazards from across the University of Edinburgh in conjunction with partners such as the British Geological Survey.
Geobiology and Geochemistry
The Geobiology and Geochemistry research group investigates the fundamental connections between biological evolution, environmental change, and the chemistry of Earth’s air, water, minerals and rocks.
