The records of the North Carolina State University Department of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences are produced mainly by three of the now-defunct departments that preceded it: Geological Engineering (1927-1954), Mineral Industries (1954-1967), and Geosciences (1967-1980). Records include reports, proposals, papers, curricula, meeting minutes, flyers and publications, official correspondence, and other items; newsletters from the State Climate Office; and meeting minutes from the NCSU Center for Marine and Coastal Studies Administrative and Planning Board.
Instuction in geology at NCSU began in the 1920s within the Agronomy Dept. and also in the Dept. of Ceramic Engineering, which offered a curriculum in mining engineering. A separate Dept. of Geology was established in 1927 within the School of Science and Business. It was transferred to the School of Engineering in July 1937 as part of the university consolidation.
In 1946, the Tennessee Valley Authority along with NC State and the North Carolina Department of Conservation and Development opened the Minerals Research Laboratory in Asheville, North Carolina, which was managed by the head of the Dept. of Geological Engineering until 1954. In May 1954, the department was combined with Ceramic and Metallurgical Engineering to form the Dept. of Mineral Industries.
In July 1967, geology was separated from the Dept. of Mineral Industries and renamed the Dept. of Geosciences as part of the School of Physical Science and Applied Mathematics (later renamed the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences). Geosciences was combined with the relatively new Dept. of Marine Science and Engineering (founded in 1978) in 1981 to form the Dept. of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences, a multidisciplinary department offering degrees in geology, marine sciences, and meteorology.
In 2013 the Department of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences became part of NC State's new, comprehensive College of Sciences.
