Associate Professor

Current Faculty or Staff Member

Julie Bowles is an Associate Professor in the Geosciences Department with expertise in Earth magnetism. She received her BS in Oceanography from the University of Washington and her PhD from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego. She studies how Earth’s magnetic field changes in space and time; how the field gets recorded in rocks and sediments; and how we can use these “rock records” of field variations to learn more about the Earth – including volcanic eruptions. Some of her work is focused on seafloor volcanic eruptions, and she has spent considerable time conducting research from scientific vessels at sea.
