The Institute for the Study of Earth, Ocean, and Space (EOS) at the University of New Hampshire, is a cutting edge, multidisciplinary scientific research institute dedicated to understanding the world we live in and the universe that surrounds it. Established in 1985, the Institute has become a world leader in the fields of space science, terrestrial ecosystems, oceanography, atmospheric science and global climate change.

EOS is home to more than 200 staff, students and faculty. According to the Institute for Scientific Information, the University of New Hampshire is ranked third nationwide in citations of geoscience research and fourth nationwide in citations of environmental science research.

Thanks to the scientists at EOS, we are beginning to gain more in-depth insight into our complex existence. Their Earth System Science approach is pushing us into a new scientific age where we are forced to contemplate the planet as one world undivided by national boundaries, encircled by one grand ocean and wrapped in one envelope of air.
