Earth sciences cover a range of topics from human activity and the environment to the formation of rocks and minerals. The field is concerned with examining earth at the molecular, macro and micro scale, from the chemistry of a single leaf to the processes that shape the world’s continents. In this subject, we combine physics, chemistry and biology with geology, geography and palaeontology to answer essential questions about the origin, development, and future of the Earth. Forming an understanding of how these key areas connect to create the complexity of Earth’s systems is what makes the subject fascinating to study.
