The Department of Earth Sciences at Uppsala University has over 250 employees and teaches more than 2200 students every year.
Our focus is on research which means that 75% of what we do is research and 25% is education. At least 30 nationalities are represented at the department.
The Department is based on five previous departments which have gradually been integrated. In 1992 the Institute of Geology, the Department of Physical Geography and the Department of Historical Geology and Paleontology merged into the Institute of Earth Sciences.
Six years later the Department of Meteorology and the Department of Geophysics joined the others and in 1998 the current Department of Earth Sciences was formed.
A few programs and a research centers has been incorporated into the department after the formation.
