Natural Resources & Earth Systems Science Ph.D.

Ph.D. program in Natural Resources and Earth Systems science (NRESS)

Researchers Addressing Today’s Environmental Challenges


Both the global environment and our understanding of that environment are changing at rates that are unprecedented in the history of the Earth. Solutions to environmental problems require knowledge of the interaction among physical, biological, environmental, and socioeconomic factors, while ethical considerations underlie both the identification of environmental problems and choice of action. The NRESS Ph.D. program is designed to meet this challenge and to encourage interdisciplinary research on the environment in the broadest sense.
