The Earth and environmental sciences are aimed at understanding Earth's dynamic history — how Earth "works" and records its origin and age in rocks and landscapes — and how geological processes affect modern environmental and ecological systems. Among the natural sciences, ours is the quintessential interdisciplinary science, providing vital perspective on how Earth's physical and geochemical templates simultaneously sustain and threaten life, and influence human interactions with Earth.
