Mission Statement

The mission of the Earth Research Institute (ERI) is to support research and education in the sciences of our solid, fluid, and living Earth.

Our areas of research comprise Natural Hazards, Human Impacts, Earth System Science, and Earth Evolution.

ERI was formed in July of 2010 through the merger of the Institute for Crustal Studies and the Institute for Computational Earth System Science.

ERI strives to build upon the existing research strengths of our founding units while fostering new interdisiciplinary collaborations examining how Earth processes affect mankind and how mankind perturbs the Earth.
