Research by geology faculty and students

We believe that rich undergraduate research experiences are the best way for students to learn what it is to "be a geologist." Faculty in the UST Geology department have a strong interest in pursuing interesting and relevant research in locations throughout the world. We involve our students in these projects whenever possible.
