Careers in Earth Science

It is arguably a very special case in planetary science, the Earth being the only known life-bearing planet. There are both reductionist and holistic approaches to Earth Sciences. The formal discipline of Earth Sciences include the study of atmosphere, hydrosphere, oceans, biosphere and the solid Earth. Typically the Earth Scientists use tools from physics, chemistry, biology, chronology, and mathematics to build a quantitative understanding of how the Earth system works and how it evolved to its current state. Fields of the study of Earth Science include geology, mineralogy, petrology, physical geography, soil science, geophysics, hydrology, glaciology etc.
