The Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics has strong ties with Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the University of California, San Diego, both of which provide research opportunities, administrative support and state-of-the-art facilities. The broad range of geophysical research expertise is acknowledged globally, and there are individual geophysics curricular groups that specialize in different fields. Please visit the Research or Staff pages for more information, or to find out more about the program curriculum visit the Program Overview page.
