Earth System Science (EAR 203) illustrates the interconnectedness of biologic, hydrologic, atmospheric, and geologic processes in shaping our planet. This approach to geology reflects a more integrated view toward the study of Earth. In today's world, with increasing global population, the threat of global warming, and a growing demand for raw materials and energy, a basic understanding of the Earth system is more important than ever.
