Cutting-edge tools to understand our planet  

Shared analytical facilities in the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences are labs that enable efficiencies of time, knowledge, and resources. They are school supported, funded, and staffed, and are shared by faculty, staff, and students across the university. Stanford Earth also maintains advanced computing facilities and is the location of Stanford's Branner Earth Sciences Library and Map Collections.
