Geoscience is the study of the Earth and all its systems.

Geoscience is the study of the Earth and all its systems. Interactions between the solid earth, the hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere continually reshape the planet. Geoscientists investigate these interactions using interdisciplinary approaches to address questions related to how the Earth formed, how it evolved over geologic time, and how its continued evolution affects the environment in which we live.
