Department HeadDr. Beverly Goodman Tchernov

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.

The Dr. Moses Strauss Department of Marine Geosciences (DMG), academically linked to the Faculty of Natural Sciences, is a leading edge, sea-going facility, established in 2007. DMG combines research and graduate studies of the marine environment in the following main disciplines: observational geophysics, mapping and remote sensing, geodynamics, tectonics, marine and coastal sedimentology, geochemistry, and chemical and physical oceanography. DMG comprises one of the center-poles in the multidisciplinary framework of the Charney School of Marine Sciences (CSMS), the only sea-going academic facility in Israel.
