We are a leading Earth Science department with researchers and teachers of the highest calibre. The Department contains a number of major research units including the Northern Centre for Isotopic and Elemental Tracing (NCIET), the Centre for Research in Earth Energy Systems (CeREES), the Kingsley Dunham Earth Imaging Laboratory, and a new Rock Deformation Laboratory. It also hosts the NERC UK Ocean-Bottom Instrumentation Facility (OBIF).
