Description:

Earth sciences encompasses all scientific studies related to the structure and development of our planet, whether investigating the composition of rocks or soil on the Earth’s surface, the movement of plates or the properties of material far beneath our feet. Although field work plays an important role in many studies, today’s geoscientist commonly use ocean drilling vessels, satellite imagery, high-precision geochemical and geophysical instruments, and the latest in electronic and laser microscopes.

Through physics we attempt to understand natural phenomena in the world around us, ranging from the very small atomic nuclei and elementary particles to the very large scale of the universe. Physics is concerned with how fundamental laws influence observed phenomena which might include anything from batting a baseball to rocket dynamics. It includes fundamental theories such as those of dynamics, relativity, electricity, magnetism, thermodynamics, nuclear and elementary particles, and quantum mechanics.
