Welcome to the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Florida

Our Mission

The Department of Geological Sciences aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of Earth materials and processes, train students who will excel in the geoscience workforce, and create sustainable solutions to Earth-related societal needs. These aims are critical for all of society’s institutions, and life in general, as non-renewable resources (hydrocarbons, metals) are depleted, renewable resources (water, soils) are increasingly contaminated, global environmental change threatens our current standard of living, and geological hazards become increasingly costly and deadly as populations grow. Successfully addressing such issues requires a clear understanding of the evolution of the Earth system and the natural forces that have influenced it over deep time, and how those processes operate in the modern Earth.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
