Physical Science/Earth Science/Geology
Earth science integrates material from all the sciences to study all parts of the Earth including the oceans, land, and atmosphere. By examining how these parts work with each other and living things (including people), Earth scientists can understand the processes that shaped the Earth of today and how our actions will impact the Earth of the future. Earth scientists include geologists, meteorologists, geographers, oceanographers and environmental scientists.
