地质 is the ultimate integrated science because all of the principles and methods of the other sciences, as well as geologic principles and methods, are applied to an understanding of the earth. Geologists study rocks, 当然, but they study them from the context of providing information that may eventually be used to forecast earthquakes, 火山喷发, and other geological hazards. The information obtained may also be applied to help geologists locate various natural resources. 因此, geology serves to enhance human existence by attempting to reduce risk and by providing the materials necessary for the expansion of civilization.
The department places considerable emphasis on the integration of lab-based analytical science with similarly rigorous analysis conducted by means of field work. 支持, the department maintains a range of field and laboratory equipment including a Mackereth coring system, 一个vibracorer, 研究水槽, 便携式XRF, plus a variety of GPS and GIS-linked surveying equipment. Many of our students obtain internships and work with faculty members on research projects.
