Cornell Continents Institute



Cornell University has formed a new research unit to study the origin and evolution of the continents. Initially, the new Institute for the Study of the Continents will comprise research efforts in geological sciences at Cornell now carried out under the Cornell Program for the Study of the Continents, the Consortium for Continental Reflection Profiling Project, the Andean Project, and related studies of crustal geology. The institute will be quartered with the Department of Geological Sciences in Snee Hall, an earth science facility now under construction.
