The Environmental Geosciences group maintains a strong interdisciplinary focus and is closely linked to scholars in related fields throughout the University of Georgia. Active research programs include Hydrogeology, Environmental Geochemistry, and Environmental Remediation. Faculty from Forestry, Geography, Crop and Soil Sciences, and Biological and Agricultural Engineering have been actively involved with the research of Geology graduate students. The Department also maintains close ties with the USEPA National Exposure Research Laboratory and USDA-ARS J. Phil Campbell Sr. Natural Resource Conservation Center. Students also conduct research at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory (US Forest Service) and the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory. Students in this program have found employment in academia, environmental consulting firms, and with State and Federal government.
