From the inner core of Earth to the edges of distant galaxies, the study of Earth and space sciences at ASU furthers understanding of the origins and evolution of the Universe, especially the planet we call home.
Broadly-based multidisciplinary research and study at ASU cut across the traditional disciplines of astronomy, physics, geology, chemistry, biology, engineering, geographical sciences and mathematics and set the stage for a new era of exploration.
More than 211 ASU researchers across the campuses hold extensive experience in space science and exploration, forming the core of ASU's New Space Initiative, leading a new integration of academic and commercial space enterprises using ASU's core strengths in space exploration research, engineering and education.
The School of Earth and Space Exploration is housed in the LEED-certified ISTB IV. The school administers academic programs and outreach, including the Mars Space Flight Facility, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera, Center for Meteorite Studies, Mars Education program, EarthScope, The Ronald Greeley Center for Planetary Studies and the Marston Exploration Theater.
Delving into how we build life on Earth, the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning pursues research and outreach in geography, urban planning, climate change, cultural geography, environmental science and GIS, from studies that examine how city-dwellers connect with nature to pioneering new methods to use of modeling and satellite imagery to examine global urbanization, urban economic development, and impacts of humans on climate, plant and animal communities and water issues.
