Geology & Geophysics

Faculty and students at UNH are actively engaged in a diverse array of geological research topics. These inlcude earthquake seismology and rock mechanics , bedrock geology, coastal processes, geochemistry, metamorphic petrology, paleoclimatology, paleontology, Quaternary geology, sedimentology/stratigraphy, and structural geology. The state of New Hampshire provides an ideal learning envoronment for geological research. Evidence of mountain-building, igneous activity, and glaciations are preserved within driving distance of campus. Earth Science faculty and students are also doing research in many other parts of the world including Mexico, Wyoming, Pakistan, New Mexico, Antarctica, China, South Africa, Peru, Argentina and New Guinea.
