Our Research Groups and a Farm

Faculty and students in the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences conduct research in areas including our planet's history and future; the energy and resource base that supports society; geologic hazards that impact a growing population; a changing climate and environment; and the challenge of sustainability. Faculty lead a variety of research groups as well as cross-departmental topic area groups. And the Stanford Educational Farm is a resource for soils and  agricultural research.

Energy Resources Engineering

Energy Resources Engineering builds on engineering principles to explore Earth's energy resources, including optimizing oil recovery from petroleum reservoirs, carbon capture and sequestration, efficient geothermal engineering, clean and efficient energy conversions, and renewable energy.
