Earth & Environmental Sciences

Essentially everything we as humans need either comes from the Earth directly or depends on its environment in some way. However, just as human history has been shaped by the intrinsic processes of Earth, the planet’s natural processes are now being drastically influenced by humans. Therefore, using physical, biological, and chemical methods, researchers in Earth and Environmental Science fields study geological processes and environmental systems. This research has important implications for the continued success of our species on this planet.
