Computational Geoscience Center
A unique facility to bring together students, faculty, and professionals in industry and government for training, teaching, and research using state-of-the-art platforms for computational methods applied to geodynamics, geophysics, and climate and ocean modeling.
Cheers to Success
Raise a toast to the success of Geosciences, and sponsor a round to help celebrate our mini-triumphs! If you do, we will celebrate you, as well. We'll put your name on this page and begin filling our mugs! $20 fills a mug; $100 fills a pitcher!
We desperately need new quality microscopes for mineralogy, petrology, economic geology, and sed/strat class use. Please make donations to Unrestricted Geosciences Support and specify that you wish your gift to be designated for petrographic microscopes.
Student Scholarships and Fellowships
Student support is particularly important right now. Consider helping a student with research or summer assistantships. Please see the list of student support opportunities in the biege box, below.
