Earth science (also known as Geoscience) blends the traditional fields of geology, physical geography and oceanography/ hydrology.
Geology describes the rocky parts of the Earth’s crust (or lithosphere) and its development.
Physical geography, which studies the Earth’s surface, includes Geo-morphology, soil science, bio-geoscience and atmospheric science.
The marine and freshwater parts of the Earth define the fields of oceanography and hydrology.
The Earth is an amazing place, and for an earth scientist, it offers a unique natural laboratory that covers space and time.
Earth science is a multidisciplinary science that applies chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics tools to understand earth processes, decipher its past and predict its future.
Earth scientists work to monitor changes in the Earth’s environment and suggest solutions to problems.
They study natural hazards to prevent loss of life and reduce property damage.
Earth scientists play key roles in the search for energy resources and minerals.
Climate change, earthquakes and renewable energy are just a few issues requiring knowledge of earth science.
