About Us



The primary mission of The Fredy & Nadine Herrmann Institute of Earth Sciences at Hebrew University is to teach and research Geology, Atmospheric Sciences, Hydrology, and Oceanography. Established in 1978, the Institute also strives to be a leader both regionally and globally in fields as diverse as climate change, water resources, and natural hazards. Many of the Institute’s staff have earned international recognition for their scientific contributions, and our graduates have gone on to hold key positions in academia, industry, and government organizations. The Institute possesses state of the art facilities, and much of our globally oriented research is carried out in collaboration with other academic institutions in Israel and abroad.
