Research Theme: Solid Earth

Here is an atmospheric-level view of all the Solid Earth
research and happenings at INSTAAR.

Studies of the composition, structure, and dynamics of the earth from its surface to its interior fall into the Solid Earth category: topics can include volcanoes, earthquakes, geochemistry, geodesy, paleontology, stratigraphy, structural geology, and tectonics.
