Earth, atmospheric, oceanographic, and space sciences
The Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences Institute (EPSSI) facilitates and promotes research and education in interdisciplinary areas spanning Earth and its ecosystems to the reaches of intergalactic space. Twenty faculty, representing seven different departments, are members of EPSSI. EPSSI oversees the interdisciplinary, non-departmental PhD program in Atmospheric Science as well as the University minor in Remote Sensing.
EPSSI's goals are to work by consensus to promote Earth, planetary and space sciences at Michigan Tech through (1) interdisciplinary coursework and programs, (2) group funding efforts for equipment and research, and (3) interdisciplinary seminars and short courses.
