Read about how the research of the Earthquake Processes and Geophysics group at UCR is helping us to understand and mitigate the hazards posed by earthquakes in this month's UCR Magazine!
UC Riverside scientists are using a variety of tools and techniques to understand processes that take place before, during, and after earthquakes, studying plate tectonics, seismic activity, buried faults, and earthquake gates, as well as major faults including the San Andreas Fault and others along...
The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of California, Riverside will no longer accept the GRE for consideration of admission to our graduate program. The GRE instead will be replaced by a holistic evaluation rubric. This change is permanent.
The full statement from the Department website:

Yuka Oshima isn’t your average undergraduate. Hard work, initiative and years of volunteer service in her field have transformed this geology major from a st...
The Earth and Planetary Sciences Class of 2020 share their thoughts, thanks and congratulations upon their graduation. Well done to all of you, and please keep in touch!

#ShakeOut at UCRiverside
This past weekend at the Geological Society of America Annual Meeting in Phoenix, our very own Nic Barth received the GSA/ExxonMobil Field Camp Excellence Award. Nic almost singlehandedly restarted our summer field program since joining the faculty in 2014, and it is a testament to his dedication and high standards that it is gaining national attention after only a few short years. Congratulations, Nic!
Check out the research Dr. Ghosh is doing in response to the Ridgecrest Earthquakes that occurred on July 4th and 5th.
It took a 7.1 earthquake for scientists to realize this fault line existed, and now they fear it could cause a “big one.” Abhijit Ghosh, an associate professor of geophysics at UC Riverside, is racing to understand the unnamed fault to help officials prepare for the next major shake.
Check it out! One of our graduate students, Jen Humphreys, is on the Nautilus expedition to the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument.
How do art, science, and lava all come together? Jennifer Humphreys can tell you! As a second year graduate student at @ucriversideofficial Jen studies the chemical evolution of magma within the lithosphere and does detective work to reveal what the composition of volcanic rocks can tell us about Earth's interior. But, Jen has not always been on the geology path; her first Bachelor degree was in Visual and Dramatic Arts! This training was an important part of her path, helping hone Jen's visual-spatial skills and observational skills. Learn more about how Jen combines her talents and training into her research here: www.nautiluslive.org/people/Jennifer-Humphrey. On our Nautilus expedition to the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument Jen is a science watchstander making geologic observations and assisting with rock samples in the lab. Learn more about what it is like to come to sea for the first time as geologist Jen takes over the #NautilusLive Instagram Story today.
Dr. Stephen Kane is giving a the Cosmic Thursday talk today! Come by and learn about "The Planet We Could Not Imagine" in Bourns Hall #A265 at 6:30 PM

Yesterday, UCR students got some hands-on field experience, learning about magnetotellurics with the EarthScope MT array! Thank you to all who made this experience possible!
“It gives me an interest that isn’t collecting cats.” Andy Ridgwell, a professor of geology, has a particularly plush collection in his #UCR office that you may want to see.
Learn about why Dr. Heather Ford decided to become a geophysicist on "Humans of Earthscope"!
“I can’t recall why I decided to become an earth scientist, but from the age of 5 or 6, I was fascinated by rocks. I grew up in Michigan, so we spent a lot of time on the lake, just walking on the beach. I’d pick up a stone and ask my father how it was made. My parents weren’t geologists....
Needing help with your resume and CV ? Come and get some help from Dr. Heather Ford this Monday!
We hope that everyone has been having a great quarter so far!
With upcoming job openings, we hope you are taking the time to think about your future success.
For those of you seeking employment before or after graduation, now is the time to refine your resumes and CV's to give yourselves the best opportunity in finding a job.
This Monday, GSO is offering a resume and CV workshop to help you prepare for job applications. This is an opportunity to get feedback and advice on how to professionally present yourself.
Join us for coffee and cookies while associate professor Heather Ford discusses the qualities in professional resumes and effective CV's.
We will be meeting on February 4th from 2-4 pm in Geology 1444. This is an open time for you to stop by and get advice on the job application process.
If you would like us to review and help revise your resume or CV, then feel free to bring either an electronic or physical copy.
Having a second opinion on your resume can greatly improve your chances of getting an interview and landing a job.
We welcome everyone to this event and hope you take advantage of this opportunity!
