Oregon State University’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) is renowned for excellence in basic and applied research on Earth systems. Our work extends from the Pacific Northwest to both poles, from the bottom of the ocean to the upper reaches of the atmosphere, from human interactions with the environment to studies of other planets in our solar system. Our mission is to pursue knowledge of the Earth system, to apply this knowledge to build a more resilient future, to integrate research with academic programs, and to create global citizens and scholars. CEOAS contributes to Oregon State’s status as a premier research institution, serving Oregon and the world.
