Giving Online to the Department of Earth Science

Our alumni and friends provide essential support for the Department of Earth Science teaching programs and research enterprise.  We discover the marvels of our home planet at spatial scales ranging from the atomic scale to the global scale, through observations, measurements, experiments, and models.  The Department of Earth Science at UCSB conducts many field studies in geographic areas ranging from the tallest mountain peaks of the Himalayas, the wilderness of Antarctica, to the vast undiscovered depths of the ocean floor.

Our graduate and undergraduate students participate directly in the excitement of exploring terra incognita.  Taught by a distinguished and dedicated faculty (including several members of the National Academy of Sciences, and winners of the UCSB Distinguished Teaching Award), students in Earth Science experience the wonder of discovery and come to appreciate and connect to the unfolding planetary drama of which they are part.

Please make your annual gift to the Department of Earth Science today - every dollar makes a difference.
