Discipline of Earth Sciences at IIT Gandhinagar envisions holistic understanding of earth system through multidisciplinary studies of its major components namely lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere, and their interactions at different spatio-temporal scales. The studies will be focussed towards quantitative understanding of the processes through deeper integration with basic sciences. Special emphasis will be provided to analyse the human-earth interaction, which is vital to develop scientific tools for sustainable development of natural resources and management of natural hazards. The department aims to understand the nonlinear and complex behaviour of earth systems and to define its future trajectory in uncertain scenario of climate change and enhanced anthropogenic disturbances.
