Research

Faculty and students in the Department of Geology and Environmental Geosciences at Northern Illinois University are involved in a broad range of theoretical and applied research, teaching, and teacher training, at the cutting edge of the Earth Sciences.

With our widely varied research themes, and with active investigations currently underway throughout the world, we are engaged in the exploration and understanding of those complex processes which determine, and have determined, the past, present, and future of the Earth and solar system.
