Division of Geology & Geophysics

Our research scientists are mainly interested in understanding the geologic framework of the nearshore regions of South Carolina. Current efforts emphasize integration of geologic and geophysical data to investigate patterns of coastal erosion along the Grand Strand region at several spatial and temporal scales. Ongoing collaborative efforts with government agencies and other academic institutions strengthen SCMSS's research capabilities, and provide Coastal Carolina University students with opportunities for involvement in applied studies of immense value in shaping their future careers.
