School of the Earth, Ocean and Environment

Carol Boggs, Director
Gwendelyn Geidel, Undergraduate Director
Joseph Quattro, Graduate Director


The School of the Earth, Ocean and Environment (SEOE) is a unit within the College of Arts and Sciences, and encompasses research and education in the geosciences, marine sciences, and environment.  Our focal academic areas span the range from the natural and social sciences to the environmental humanities.  Unification of these areas under one umbrella encourages synergistic interactions and collaborations in both research and teaching.  The Belle Baruch Institute for Marine and Coastal Sciences, and the Earth Sciences and Resources Institute are housed within the SEOE, and provide unique facilities and resources.
