Welcome

The Hawaiʻi Institute of Geophysics and Planetology is a multi-disciplinary institute conducting research, technology development, teaching, workforce training, and service in cutting-edge oceanographic, atmospheric, geophysical, geological, and planetary sciences and engineering.

We Are

We are an Organized Research Unit  of the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) at the Mānoa (Honolulu) campus of the University of Hawaiʻi, with access to state-of-the-art laboratories, instrumentation, research vessels, and far-ranging field sites.

Opportunities

HIGP partners with the College of Engineering for satellite fabrication and launch through the Hawaiʻi Space Flight Laboratory. Our expertise spans the globe from pole to pole, from the deep Earth interior to the upper atmosphere, and extends to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.
