GMEG - Geology, Minerals, Energy, & Geophysics Science Center


Natural systems consist of a variety of interrelated geologic, biologic, hydrologic, and climatic subsystems, each with their own set of processes that effect, and are effected by, other subsystem processes.  In many cases today, anthropogenic subsystems also effect, and are affected by, natural processes.  The Center scientists have a diverse set of skills and capabilities that have been and can be applied to diverse geoscientific issues of importance to society and the economy.  Our approach to any particular problem is to understand the operable processes and their interrelations and provide comprehensive products that allow for more informed land-management decisions.

Examples of completed and ongoing studies include:
