An interdisciplinary lab of scientific research that brings together Earth Science, Archeology, and Physical Geography to better understand natural processes that result in the phenomenon we observe in the world around us and the impact these natural processes have on human beings through both modern and ancient timescales. We conduct research focused on soils, climate, erosional processes, natural resources, natural hazards, and human-environment interactions.

What is EARTH Systems Lab?

The EARTH Systems Lab is an interdisciplinary partnership between Minnesota State faculty in Earth Science, Archeology, and Physical Geography that serves as a hub for innovative and collaborative scientific research with regional, national, and global impacts.
