Around 50 academic and research staff research and teach a variety of topics in fields as diverse as biodiversity, biogeochemistry, ecology, evolution, palaeoenvironmental change, geochemistry, oceanography, palaeontology, sedimentology, tectonics, noble gas mass spectrometry and volcanology. Our research makes a significant contribution in each of these areas, and the School enjoys full use of the Faculty's exceptionally well equipped research facilities.

Members of the School teach on a wide range of modules which contribute to two BSc qualifications (Environmental Science and Natural Sciences) and the MSc in Earth Sciences. The modules cover theoretical, practical and applied aspects of environmental and Earth sciences.
