Our Mission

Our world is being transformed due to climate variability, population growth, intensive land use, and the increasing demands on water, ecological, agricultural, energy, and mineral resources. To address these issues, the Geosciences and Environmental Change Science Center (GECSC) conducts research on (1) climatic, environmental, and landscape changes, (2) the geologic framework of natural resources and hazards, (3) ecological disturbance patterns resulting from natural and anthropogenic changes, and (4) the interactions among geologic, biologic, hydrologic, and human systems. This work supports policy and management decisions, the search for new sources of key materials, and the assessment of the combined environmental impacts of climate variability and human activities.
