Earth and Environmental Science Program

Socorro NM

New Mexico Tech’s Department of Earth and Environmental Science offers BS, MS, and PhD degrees in a broad range of earth sciences. The department incorporates five strongly interacting graduate programs — Geology, Geochemistry, Geophysics, Hydrology, and Geobiology — in association with an integrated undergraduate major in Earth Science featuring options in Geology, Geophysics, Hydrology, and Mineral Resources. The department also administers a cross-department undergraduate degree in Environmental Science.


The department has 14 faculty members, of which four are in geophysics, five in hydrology, and five in geology/geochemistry. In addition, the department has more than 40 affiliated research and adjunct faculty who are actively involved in research and/or teaching. Many of these are from the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources, which is located on campus, but they also come from national laboratories, industry, and other organizations. The IRIS PASSCAL Instrument Center and EarthScope USArray Array Operations Facility, two major NSF-funded seismological facilities, are also housed on campus and administered by faculty of the geophysics program.

The department maintains an average of 65 graduate students and 60 undergraduate students and is strongly research-oriented. Major areas of research include (but are not restricted to):

Groundwater hydrology

Watershed hydrology

Cave and karst studies

Aqueous geochemistry / Reactive transport


Earthquake seismology


Tectonics/structural geology

Faults and fluid flow


Sedimentology and diagenesis


Economic geology

petroleum systems, basin analysis and exploration geophysics
