The study of Earth Science draws primarily on geology, astronomy and
meteorology with additional attention to the fields of oceanography
and life history. The traditional background for earth science
focuses on the quantitative aspects of science and mathematics. 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, to 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.
