The Graduate Program

4 Thomas Kim GradProgram

The Graduate Program in Geography encourages work on a wide range of research specialties and fosters strong interdisciplinary ties. Topics reflected in the work of our faculty and current graduate students include: human geographyphysical geography, and human-environmental geography. Each of these core areas may be enhanced through training in advanced geographical techniques

The graduate program has a total of 28 faculty members. They consist of 9 members of the “core” Department of Geography faculty and 19 faculty members with geographic research interests located in other schools and departments, such as the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy; the Department of Human Ecology; the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources; the Department of Landscape Architecture; and the Department of Anthropology.

Graduate Research

  • Teale, Natalie

    My research is centered on hydro-climatology, defined as the inter-action of the climate system with hydrological processes, which strongly influences the land surface on which we live. The northeast United States is affected by a wide range of climatological and meteorological processes from all sides: cold, dry air masses from the north; warm, moist jets from the south; maritime processes from the Atlantic Ocean to the east; and a mixed bag of synoptic and mesoscale systems from the west.
