Since its founding in 1972, the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics (UTIG) is a world leader in expeditionary-scale geophysical research, conducting research in five broad themes: climate, energy, marine geosciences, seismology and tectonophysics, and planetary and polar geophysics. UTIG is home to more than 50 research scientists and postdocs — research entrepreneurs — providing a broadband of expertise that can do everything from conducting scientific ocean drilling to leading airborne radar studies of ice sheets. UTIG scientists supplement their fieldwork with computer analysis, modeling, and laboratory work. Whether collecting seismic data, responding to natural disasters, or searching space for signs of life, UTIG is there.
