The program includes collaboration between Earth Sciences/Geosciences departments from at least two other institutions (originally Monash and La Trobe universities, under our Victorian Institute of Earth and Planetary Sciences or ‘VIEPS’ legal agreement and partnership) expanding in the last decade to involve cooperation between several institutions (including Melbourne). Cooperation at this national level provides students from all participating institutions with the opportunity to access the best and broadest array of advanced coursework in the Earth Sciences discipline. The School of Earth Sciences is home to diverse research activities that are well supported by equipment and technology both in the lab and field. Our research interests include: the solid Earth, the fluid Earth (including our atmosphere and oceans), and processes that operate at the interface between these regions. Current research activities in the School include: climate variability and change, sedimentary geology, palaeontology and the physics and chemistry of the Earth’s deep interior.
