Welcome!

The Department of Earth Sciences at UNH aims to improve our understanding of the Earth, and the processes that affect it, through excellence in teaching, research, and service. We offer undergraduate and graduate degrees encompassing a broad spectrum of disciplines including geology, hydrology, oceanography, ocean mapping, geochemistry, climate science, and geophysics. Our location on the Great Bay Estuary near the White Mountains provides an ideal backdrop for hands-on learning opportunities. Join us in our journey of discovery!
