Science

What does it mean to be an Earth scientist? This branch of science includes natural sciences that relate to our planet. It includes studying what the Earth is made of, how people use the Earth’s materials, and how the Earth changes over time.
Earth scientists need to understand the rocks and minerals that make up the Earth. They also explore how these materials interact with Earth’s water supply, living things, and atmosphere, or the gases surrounding our planet. All of these factors help us understand how the Earth has changed over time.
It is important to study Earth’s various mineral and energy resources because it depends on how people can use these resources for daily life. Minerals like iron, copper, and nickel are used for industrial purposes, including the construction of paper, glass, plastics, electronics, and more. Through the knowledge of Earth science, sources of energy, like coal, oil, gas, uranium, and geothermal are discovered. Mineral and energy resources are used to water crops, helping provide people with food.

Currently, society grapples with environmental issues including environmental contamination and global climate change. Studying Earth science can help people better preserve the planet, and even predict natural disasters like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and landslides.
Another important piece of information for Earth scientists is the fossil record, the collection of fossils that catalogues the history of life on Earth. Fossils are remains of living things preserved in rocks, and they tell the incredible story of Earth’s 4.6- billion year history. Studying fossils gives scientists insight into how life has changed since its beginnings as single-cell bacteria. Fossils show how life has diversified over time by helping us track different living things throughout history.
