We are excited to present the debut of Strata, a new research magazine published by the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences dedicated to the college’s top-notch research and the importance of the Earth sciences around the globe and close to home.

The idea for Strata was hatched during the stay-at-home COVID days, when our isolation made us crave the collaboration we love as science communicators. Because the work of CEOAS is so diverse, choosing a title was difficult. We considered and rejected dozens of titles, but “Strata” kept floating to the top of our lists. All CEOAS scientists peer at and peel back layers, whether in a sediment core or an oceanic water column or the structure of social-environmental systems. We hope to do justice in these pages to the college’s nuanced, innovative science.

We’d love to hear what you think of Strata! Feel free to drop a note to editors Abby P. Metzger or Nancy Steinberg.
