Geology and Geophysics is one of the truly cross-disciplinary areas that brings together physics, chemistry, biology, math and geology in order to understand the planet on which we live. Our faculty, research scientists and students tackle issues of vital importance to society, including earthquakes, volcanic hazards, hurricanes, climate change, evolution and the fossil record, atmospheric carbon remediation, and the sustainability of natural resources. Researchers at Geology and Geophysics also explore fundamental questions such as the origin and evolution of the solar system and planets, the origin and rise of life.
The Yale Center for Research Computing maintains an active partnership with Geology and Geophysics (G&G), supporting researchers use of high performance computing. Kaylea Nelson, a member of the Research Support team in the YCRC helps G&G researchers make best use of the YCRC’s advanced cyberinfrastructure.
