The School of Earth Sciences is very proud of the internationally recognised reputation for excellence which we posses. This is seen in both the number and quality of our publications, with all members of academic staff and postdoctoral/research staff having contributed to our extensive list of publications. The high profile of our research is reflected in the success of grant applications to national and international agencies, the foundation of iCRAG and in the support from industry, both within Ireland and internationally. All academic staff are active researchers and all have been highly successful in winning research funding. In recent years members of the School have won funding amounting to approximately €2 million per year.
