organisation profile

The Department of Geology and Geophysics, University of Edinburgh, carries out research in five principal areas of Earth Science: 

  1. Igneous, metamorphic and experimental petrology, 
  2. Tectonics and earth history, 
  3. Marine and quaternary geology, 
  4. Geophysics, 
  5. Petroleum Geoscience.

There are close links with other University Departments, with the British Geological Survey (BGS) which is on the same site, with Heriot-Watt University, with the Petroleum Science and Technology Institute, and with the Scottish Universities Research and Reactor Centre at East Kilbride. The Department houses the Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC) National Geophysical Equipment Pool, the NERC Edinburgh Ion Probe Centre and a UFC Electron Probe Centre. Postgraduate activity is organised into a Graduate School which acts as a focus for research student affairs. The School of GeoSciences brings together interests in Earth surface, body and atmospheric processes, together with the natural and human environment. The School comprises top ranking researchers and promotes innovation in teaching. The School was formed from the Departments of Geology & Geophysics and Geography, as well as the Institutes of Meteorology and Ecology & Resource Management.
