Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
Recognizing that the challenges of the new century require an integrated understanding of Earth systems, geological and atmospheric sciences have been combined into an inter-college department. The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences offers three majors at the undergraduate level; graduate students concentrate in traditional fields or cross-disciplinary programs such as biogeochemistry.

Data from: Active normal faulting, diking, and doming above the rapidly inflating Laguna del Maule volcanic field, Chile imaged with CHIRP, magnetic, and focal mechanism data (2020)Data in support of the following research: The Laguna del Maule volcanic field (LdMVF) in Chile, a rapidly inflating silicic volcanic system without historical eruption, is intersected by active regional faults. The LdMVF ...
Annual mean soluble iron deposition and ocean BGC response for each case in Hamilton et al. (2020) (2020-02-25)Iron can be a growth‐limiting nutrient for phytoplankton, modifying rates of net primary production, nitrogen fixation, and carbon export, highlighting the importance of new iron inputs from the atmosphere. The bioavailable ...
Data from: Shear velocity structure from ambient noise and teleseismic surface wave tomography in the Cascades around Mount St. Helens (2019)Mount St. Helens (MSH) lies in the forearc of the Cascades where conditions should be too cold for volcanism. To better understand thermal conditions and magma pathways beneath MSH, data from a dense broadband array are ...
Synthetic data from: Enhanced resolution of the subducting plate interface in Central Alaska from autocorrelation of local earthquake coda (2018)This dataset supports the following research: Subducting plates below 10‐km depth are primarily imaged using phases from teleseismic earthquakes at frequencies dominantly below 1 Hz, resulting in low‐resolution images ...
(2018-09-20)The Caribbean islands are expected to see more frequent and severe droughts from reduced precipitation and increased evaporative demand due to anthropogenic climate change. Between 2013 and 2016, the Caribbean experienced ...
