Department of Earth Sciences
Earth Sciences, or geology, from the ancient Greek meaning “The Study of the Earth”, is the study of our dynamic planet, from its interior to its surface, and from the events that occurred since its formation 4568 million years ago, to the processes that take place in the modern Earth.
Our Graduating 4th year students completed their GeoSoc mural in the tunnels of Carleton this past Winter 2019 term. Leaving a piece of themselves for future classes to see and aspire to, we wish them luck in their next endeavor.
The Department of Earth Sciences Outreach Coordinator, Beth McLarty-Halfkenny, has been awarded the 2019 E.R. Ward Neale Medal from the Geological Association of Canada. Named after the legendary E.R. Ward Neale, this medal is awarded to an individual for sustained outstanding efforts in sharing earth sciences with Canadians.
