Geological Sciences Research

Geological sciences areas of interest at the University of Delaware focuses in four major areas: geobiology, geochemistry, water science, and stratigraphy and paleoclimate.

Here are a few of our research programs, laboratories, and affiliated programs in Geological Sciences. Prospective students should also consult our individual faculty member web pages to learn more about our research activities, and then visit our prospective students page.
