We have twelve major research areas covering a diverse range of research interests. Browse the links below for more information.
Our coast and river research investigates the natural processes operating on the landscape, across a range of temporal and spatial scales.
We consider the origin and evolution of life, island adaptation to climate change, and the use of proxy records for studying paleoenvironments.
Our research covers the breadth of hazards and disasters, from their physical processes to the ability of people and communities to respond.
Ocean covers over 95% of the New Zealand territory, making it an ideal place to research issues of marine geoscience.
Forest ecosystems face a wide range of threats. We seek to understand issues such as deforestation, pathogens and climate change.
We explore the many environmental, social, cultural and political challenges confronting Pacific nations.
Our research has an ethical and methodological approach to activist and community-based inquiry, advocacy and representation.
Movement is central to human existence. We study the changing nature of population dynamics and mobility and their impact on wellbeing.
We research the Pacific’s diverse tectonic settings and natural resources, with projects that span the fundamental and applied Earth sciences.
Our research addresses the biophysical systems that operate in urban areas and the role that humans play in driving these processes.
We consider the many lived experiences of social spaces, inequality and social difference and the potential for progressive change in the worlds we inhabit.
New Zealand’s volcanic environment makes it an ideal natural laboratory for research into magmatic systems.
