The department has 8 specific fields of strength:
Biogeosciences, Climate, Cognitive and Behavioral Geography, Geographic Information Science, Human-Environment Relations, Ocean Processes, Remote Sensing, and Transportation.
Each field is covered by several faculty, plus affiliates, emeriti, and interdisciplinary units and cross-appointments. All faculty have expertise that transcend any single field, thus providing cohesive linkages.
