Areas of Study
The study of Earth Science draws primarily on geology and meteorology with additional
attention to the fields of oceanography and life history. The traditional background
for Earth Science focuses on mathematics and the quantitative aspects of science.
The contemporary study and practice of Earth Science includes the qualitative
evaluation and understanding of earth processes.
Both the quantitative and qualitative factors are applied in
decision-making processes that range from plans for worldwide
concerns, such as global warming, and for natural disasters, such as
earthquakes and floods, to evaluation of a building site for a home.
Earth Science is also a companion field of study for hydrologists and
environmental scientists and for related careers in government,
business, and industry.
