Earth Systems Science Group

The Earth System Science Group focuses on understanding the Earth as a whole system, comprising life and its environment, including the atmosphere, ocean, sea-ice, land surface, ice sheets, and crustal rocks. The group's research interests span the full range of Earth system timescales, from the formation of the planet 4.6 billion years ago to current and future human-induced global change. We are particularly interested in the ongoing co-evolution of life and the environment.
