Description

Earth is an extraordinary planet; it supports life, has abundant oxygen in its atmosphere, and has an active water cycle. This course explores the interactions among the rocks and soils beneath our feet, water and ice on land and in the oceans, the thin atmospheric envelope and the even thinner layer of living matter. We explore how the Earth system has evolved over geological time and how natural processes stabilize our global environment. We also assess how humans have influenced the natural system and examine the consequences for global warming, severe weather, groundwater pollution, and extinctions.
