Our teaching and research programmes are anchored in a passion for planet Earth and the geological, environmental, and social processes that affect the world around us.

Throughout New Zealand and across the globe, from the Earth’s deep interior to the communities we live in, our staff and students are working to understand the matters that most affect our planet.
