What Is Earth Science?

Our learning specialists and academic tutors provide 1:1 individualized tutoring in Earth Science for high school and college students.

 

Earth Science is the study of the Earth and its neighbors in space. It is an exciting science with many interesting and practical applications. Some Earth scientists use their knowledge to locate and develop energy and mineral resources. Others study the impact of human activity on the Earth’s environment, and design methods to protect the planet. Some use their knowledge about the Earth processes such as volcanoes, earthquakes, and hurricanes to plan communities that will not expose people to these dangerous events.

 

 

The Importance of Earth Science

 

Earth Science plays a unique and essential role in today’s rapidly changing world. It is an integrated study of the Earth’s history, composition, and structure, its atmosphere and oceans, and its environment in space. Knowledge of Earth Science is important because most human activities are related to interaction with the planet Earth

The Four Earth Sciences

Many different sciences are used to learn about the Earth; however, the four basic areas of Earth science study are: geology, meteorology, oceanography, and astronomy. 

 

 

Geology: Science of the Earth

 

Geology is the primary Earth science. The word means “study of the Earth.” Geology deals with the composition of Earth materials, Earth structures, and Earth processes. It is also concerned with the organisms of the planet and how the planet has changed over time. Geologists search for fuels and minerals, study natural hazards, and work to protect Earth’s environment

 

 

Meteorology: Science of the Atmosphere

 

Meteorology is the study of the atmosphere and how processes in the atmosphere determine Earth’s weather and climate. Meteorology is a very practical science because everyone is concerned about the weather. How climate changes over time in response to the actions of people is a topic of urgent worldwide concern. The study of meteorology is of critical importance in protecting the Earth’s environment.

Oceanography: Science of the Oceans

 

Oceanography is the study of Earth’s oceans – their composition, movement, organisms, and processes. The oceans cover most of our planet and are important resources for food and other commodities. They are increasingly being used as an energy source. The oceans also have a major influence on the weather and changes in the oceans can drive or moderate climate change. Oceanographers work to develop the ocean as a resource and protect it from human impact. The goal is to utilize the oceans while minimizing the effects of our actions.

 

 

Astronomy: Science of the Universe

 

Astronomy is the study of the universe. Here are some examples of why studying space is important. The moon drives the ocean’s tidal system, asteroid impacts have repeatedly devastated Earth’s inhabitants, and energy from the sun drives our weather and climates. A knowledge of astronomy is essential to understanding the Earth. Astronomers can also use knowledge of Earth materials, processes, and history to understand other planets – even those outside of our own solar system.

Earth Science Careers

 

Geomorphologists

Study-related to erosion and glaciations. They study the process of erosion and glaciations and take necessary remediation to eliminate the issue.

 

Hydrologists and Mineralogists

Responsible for identifying, measuring, and analyzing the source of water and minerals. Mineralogists analyze the minerals and precious stones in rocks and minerals. Then they determine how to use the minerals and stones in various industries.

 

Marine Geologists

Study the physical aspects of the oceans and current streams.

 

Petroleum Geologists

Have important and demanding jobs. They conduct tests and locate the presence of the natural gas and oil deposits on sites both onshore and offshore. 

 

Paleontologists 

Study ancient fossils. They help trace the evolution of plant and animal life and estimate their existence on the earth.

 

Seismologists

Interpret the data of the earth’s tectonic moments and identify earthquakes.

 

Geologists

Are one of the most well-known careers. They teach and carry out academic research in universities and colleges.

 

Stratigraphers

Study the distribution and arrangement of sedimentary rock layers of both the land and the sea. They help us understand the earth’s layers and it’s a distribution of the land and sea.
