Earth Systems

Earth Systems Science focuses on the connections among the Earth’s systems throughout Earth’s history. These systems – the atmosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere, and biosphere – interact through time to produce the Earth’s landscapes, ecology, and resources. The course develops explanations of phenomena fundamental to the sciences of geology and physical geography including the early history of the Earth, plate tectonics,landform evolution, weather and climate, and the Earth’s geologic record.
