Edwin C. Allison Center for Earth System History

Throughout the history of science, many of the critical breakthroughs in scientific understanding have resulted from cross-disciplinary research. The mission of the Allison Center for Historical Science is to foster this approach across the fields of the Earth Sciences. Specifically, the center seeks to facilitate research designed to improve and disseminate our understanding of global change and biodiversity, arguably the two most important topics facing current and future generations. Scholarly examination of materials by SDSU students, faculty, and guests (visiting students, post-docs, faculty) is supported through dedicated research space and facilities.
