Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks

Scientists at the Geophysical Institute study geophysical processes in action from the center of Earth to the surface of the sun and beyond. The Institute turns data and observations into information useful for research, state and national needs. Much of this research is performed by Institute faculty, staff and students as part of their regular work.

An Act of Congress established the Geophysical Institute in 1946. Since that time, the Institute has earned an international reputation for studying Earth and its physical environments at high latitudes and is now diversified into seven major research units. Institute faculty and research staff serve on a number of advisory boards providing scientific evaluation and ideas for a wide range of concerns.

At the Geophysical Institute, research and education proceed hand-in-hand. Opportunities abound for undergraduate and graduate research with our renowned scientists.

This year's Science for Alaska Lecture Series will be held
in the Westmark Hotel Gold Room on Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m.,
January 20 through February 24, 2015.
