The Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space (EOS) is UNH’s largest research organization and its first University Institute. It brings together under common themes a number of well-established research programs. Research activities are focused in EOS’ four centers: the Climate Change Research Center, the Complex Systems Research Center, the Ocean Process Analysis Laboratory, and the Space Science Center.
EOS scientists are exploring processes on the Sun, solar influences on Earth and its magnetosphere, the chemistry and dynamics of the atmosphere, changing climate, and large-scale ecosystems in terrestrial and marine environments, emphasizing complex impacts on and by human activities. Research takes EOS investigators from the most distant energetic phenomena in the universe to the Earth’s environment in space; to tropical, temperate, and boreal forests; from the coast of New Hampshire to the Gulf of Maine and the deepest regions of the ocean; from the grasslands and agricultural fields of China to those of the American Midwest; from the great ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica to the summit of Mount Washington. EOS scientists and students use satellites, aircraft, ships, and submersibles to explore and investigate the most important and inaccessible places in the universe, in our solar system, and on our planet.
The primary educational theme of the Institute is the training and mentoring of graduate students through participation in advanced research funded by major national and international organizations; for example, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the National Science Foundation, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. However, EOS faculty teach and mentor undergraduate students as well, and there are numerous opportunities for undergraduates to participate in the research activities of the Institute. Undergraduates interested in EOS activities should contact either EOS faculty in their academic departments, or e-mail the EOS director’s office, firstname.lastname@example.org.
