Department head: Dr. Michael Lazar

Recent deep-sea gas discoveries offshore Israel pose world-class scientific, technical and environmental challenges. These significant developments provide students with career opportunities in disciplines such as exploration geophysics and environmental geology.

Using the eastern Mediterranean as a natural marine laboratory, the Department provides students with a unique opportunity to develop practical scientific experience at sea together with a rigorous academic curriculum. Study programs combine coursework with deep sea, coastal and underwater field excursions, as well as geological field trips to coastal marine structures.
