Key research themes
CEPSAR aims to explore origins, systems and processes with respect to the evolution and chemistry of materials that form the stars and planetary bodies, the processes and natural systems that shape the environment of our habitable world, and the essential properties of a Solar System that allows life to develop on one of its planets. Research in CEPSAR is focused on 6 strategic research themes:
- Environmental Change (Past, Present and Future)
- Natural Hazards
- Planetary Geosciences
- Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry
- Solar System Exploration
A priority for CEPSAR's research is to investigate issues that are at the cutting-edge of science, are topical, with practical outcomes to Earth dwellers and planetary investigators. Our research will supply knowledge that ensures continued and improved habitability of our planet by a better understanding of its processes (past, present and future). All this is set within a period of rapid environmental change (the next 10 years may prove crucial for Earth) that may influence the lives of our children and future generations.
