Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences

The Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences help you understand the world around, under, and above you.

Connect human activity and natural events, including issues ranging from the environment to urban planning to planetary bodies.

Are multidisciplinary sciences that help us to understand the dynamic earth: its past, present, and future.
