Geology Students Hiking in New Mexico


Dr. Stowell at Swakane Canyon

Welcome to the University of Alabama Department of Geological Sciences web site. I hope that you will find this site informative and easy to use.

Our site provides both academic and nonacademic information about west central Alabama and the University of Alabama. Included are brief descriptions of the historical, geographical, and geological diversity of Alabama and the city of Tuscaloosa. This diversity provides an excellent setting for the University. Information about the University and the department of Geological Sciences outlines the rich traditions, excellent facilities, academic depth, and diverse research interests of faculty, staff, and students.

I hope you will agree that our department has much to offer the public, researchers, and prospective students. I invite you to browse our web site and visit the Department if you are in the Tuscaloosa area. I will be happy to show you our facilities and introduce you to our faculty and students. If I can provide any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
