About Us

Earth and oceanographic science faculty and students at Bowdoin investigate fundamental questions about our planet.

We sample rocks, sediments, and shells to reconstruct Earth’s geologic history and past climates and employ satellites and scanning electron microscopes to study Earth’s systems, from the largest to smallest scales. From tracking how a harmful algal bloom develops along our coastline to learning how supervolcanos form deep within the earth, a degree in EOS opens up a world of possibilities.

EOS values community.

Contact the EOS office with any questions.
