Department Head: Dr. Joel Gagnon
Earth and environmental scientists study the composition and structure of Earth, the physical, chemical, and biological processes that shape our planet and environment, as well as the impact that humans have on the environment.
Faculty research in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences mostly falls into three main areas of interest: Geofluids, Geochemistry, and Environmental Geoscience.
We also offer graduate M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree programs in Earth Science, which are supported by a wide variety of high-quality research facilities. Located at the heart of the Great Lakes region, Windsor is at the centre of one of the most environmentally important regions in North America, where teaching and research in water and air quality, ecosystem health, and resource management are making a difference.
