The Curiosity Rover may have been ambling around the Gale Crater on Mars for nearly seven years but a group at Johns Hopkins University has just found a way to use it for something new: making the first surface gravity measurements on a planet other than Earth.
Listen to EPS faculty as they provide a snapshot of the research happening in the department. This research is changing the way scientists view many of our systems, from planetary systems to ecosystems.
Dr. Emmy Smith and Dr. Daniel Viete led students on an October field trip to Gambrill State Park, where Dynamic Earth students took the opportunity to learn about Maryland’s regional geology.
The Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences, Johns Hopkins University, invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate or assistant research scientist. The successful candidate will join a team designing, computing, disseminating, and analyzing cutting edge global ocean circulation model solutions. The research team aims to advance knowledge of the role of small-scale processes on the […]
On Saturday, November 3, 2018, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM, the Bromo-Seltzer Arts Tower will host an opening reception for an exhibition of works by Amy Wetsch, an MFA candidate at MICA's Mount Royal School of Art.
