Abstract : In this paper, we investigate the curvature behavior of complete noncompact gradient expanding Ricci solitons with nonnegative Ricci curvature. For such a soliton in dimension four, it is shown that the Riemann curvature tensor and its covariant derivatives are bounded. Moreover, the Ricci curvature is controlled by the scalar curvature. In higher dimensions, we prove that the Riemann curvature tensor grows at most polynomially in the distance function.
