Earth Systems Sciences

The Earth Systems Sciences focus area comprises a broad spectrum of field-, computational-, and laboratory-based research efforts, spanning all corners of Earth's surface, and from the upper reaches of the atmosphere to the depths of the inner core. As with all SESE themes, many research thrusts thrive through the interdisciplinary efforts of its researchers. Field-based exploration takes members of the SESE team from Yellowstone to Tibet to southern Africa, while SESE's world-class laboratories enable exploration and discovery from within. Computational facilities in SESE enable transformative discoveries through several in-house computer clusters, as well as extensive access to ASU's high-performance computing infrastructure. Arizona State earth sciences research experiences for graduates and undergraduates are fulfilling, leading students to publish their research in high-profile research journals, win awards at major international research meetings, and land top jobs in both academia and industry.
