The Harquail School of Earth Sciences
The Harquail School of Earth Sciences at Laurentian University offers some of the most comprehensive field- and laboratory-based Earth Science research and education programs in North America. Located in the world's largest geology and mining cluster in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, on the rim of one of the world's oldest, largest, and best-exposed asteroid impact sites, we have a setting for field-based teaching and research that cannot be duplicated elsewhere.
