The Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences presents its work in three main topics: environmental geochemistry and hydrology, geochemistry of the Earth's interior, and solid-earth geophysics. For each topic, the website offers summaries of the faculty's successes and current projects as well as links to the latest research news stories. Visitors can discover the equipment and technology available at the Jonsson-Rowland Science Center and the Materials Research Center, including a twelve-channel seismograph, atomic force microscopes, and atmospheric quench furnaces. Visitors can discover the Institute's history beginning with the successes of the founder, Amos Eaton, who has been often considered as the father of North American geology.
