In July 2014, the new School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment was formed, bringing together the former School of Geosciences (Faculty of Science), atmospheric science (School of Mathematics) and physical geography (Faculty of Arts).
It creates a critical mass, an Australian powerhouse of Earth sciences education and research.
The innovation is a response to an emerging demand for Monash's talented teachers and researchers to foster its collaborative ties within its Earth sciences. It will build up the foundations of a stimulating, information-rich environment for students, across disciplines.
Monash University's reputation in environmental sciences is on an upward trajectory - with geography currently ranked number one within the Group of Eight research-intensive universities.
