EPS Students on Book Cliffs field trip in Utah

The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Rutgers University on the New Brunswick/Piscataway Campus is a community of students, faculty members, and research scientists engaged in the exploration of a wide variety of geological problems on Earth and other solar system bodies. We offer both challenging and comprehensive instruction, and students are encouraged to become vital members of this research community. Interdisciplinary studies are fostered through the Rutgers Institute of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences. Several faculty hold joint appointments in Anthropology, Environmental Sciences, and Marine & Coastal Sciences. A weekly Geology Colloquium brings a diversity of Earth Scientists to our Department to discuss the latest research results and new techniques. Our museum exhibits local geology and engages the public with outreach. Left, EPS Students on Book Cliffs field trip in Utah.
