    Earth Science

    6:37

    ... The American Geological Institute (AGI) is a nonprofit federation of 45 geoscientific and professional associations that represents more than 120,000 geologists, geophysicists, and other earth scientists.

    ---
    Please SUBSCRIBE to Science & Reason:




    ---

    Founded in 1948, AGI provides information services to geoscientists, serves as a voice of shared interests in our profession, plays a major role in strengthening geoscience education, and strives to increase public awareness of the vital role the geosciences play in society's use of resources, resilience to natural hazards, and the health of the environment.



    ---

    Earth science (also known as geoscience, the geosciences or the Earth sciences), is an all-embracing term for the sciences related to the planet Earth. It is arguably a special case in planetary science, the Earth being the only known life-bearing planet. There are both reductionist and holistic approaches to Earth science.

    There are four major disciplines in earth sciences, namely geography, geology, geophysics and geodesy. These major disciplines use physics, chemistry, biology, chronology and mathematics to build a quantitative understanding of the principal areas or spheres of the Earth system.

    The following fields of science are generally categorized within the geosciences:

    - Geology describes the rocky parts of the Earth's crust (or lithosphere) and its historic development. Major subdisciplines are mineralogy and petrology, geochemistry, geomorphology, paleontology, stratigraphy, structural geology, engineering geology and sedimentology.

    - Geophysics and Geodesy investigate the figure of the Earth, its reaction to forces and its magnetic and gravity fields. Geophysicists explore the Earth's core and mantle as well as the tectonic and seismic activity of the lithosphere.

    - Soil science covers the outermost layer of the Earth's crust that is subject to soil formation processes (or pedosphere). Major subdisciplines include edaphology and pedology.

    - Oceanography and hydrology (includes limnology) describe the marine and freshwater domains of the watery parts of the Earth (or hydrosphere). Major subdisciplines include hydrogeology and physical, chemical, and biological oceanography.

    - Glaciology covers the icy parts of the Earth (or cryosphere).

    - Atmospheric sciences cover the gaseous parts of the Earth (or atmosphere) between the surface and the exosphere (about 1000 km). Major subdisciplines are meteorology, climatology, atmospheric chemistry and atmospheric physics.

    - A very important linking sphere is the biosphere, the study of which is biology. The biosphere consists of all forms of life, from single-celled organisms to pine trees to people. The interactions of Earth's other spheres - lithosphere/geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and/or cryosphere and pedosphere - create the conditions that can support life.

    Environmental Conservation and Natural Resources - YES

    1:09

    Environmental conservation and natural resources depend on protecting our planet.

    Sometimes the best thing you can do is nothing at all! At YES that's exactly what we do: we protect parcels of virgin wilderness by purchasing them on the free market and placing them in an independently managed international land trust safe from human exploitation.

    YES is a tool that allows you to become the beneficiary of virgin wilderness (generically referred to as Land Unit) to help preserve them in their natural state thus allowing you to collaborate in the conservation of the planet.

    However small it might be, all contributions to environmental protection are always helpful. By joining YES you as an individual are contributing in a very real way to maintaining the global ecosystem, protecting the globall community and letting nature take its course.

He starts by defining the characteristics of a system and describes how system models can be used to better understand the world. For example a system model of the water cycle can show the cycling of matter on the surface of the Earth. He ends with a progression of instruction for a K-12 science classroom.

    LYRICS:

    Earth has four major
    Geological Subsystems
    I will teach you in this song
    I hope you learn and listen

    Geosphere, Atmosphere
    Hydrosphere and Biosphere
    Are four major systems on earth
    That balance why we survive here

    These systems are all separate
    But interact with one another
    In so many different ways
    in each system you will discover

    Lets start with Geosphere
    All earths materials and mass
    It’s comprised of these parts
    That you’re learning in my class

    The solid Iron inner core’s
    a bit smaller than the moon
    The Nickel-Iron Alloy
    Outer core is liquid It is true

    The Mantle is the layer
    between the crust and outer core
    mostly made of minerals
    and silicate rock lets learn some more

    Which brings us to the Crust
    In which we all play and live on
    Made up of rock and lots of elements
    that keep it really strong

    Earth has four major
    Geological Subsystems
    I will teach you in this song
    I hope you learn and listen

    The Atmosphere’s the next Sphere that
    we will look at
    It contains earths air And protects us all
    now how about that

    The atmospheres made up of
    five layers now you know
    One layer blocks radiation from the sun
    it is called the Ozone

    Lets move onto the Hydrosphere
    Its a major one as well
    It includes all forms of earths water
    Now isn’t that swell

    Oceans, lakes, rivers,
    and our water vapor too
    Are what make up Hydrosphere
    you just learned something new

    The Biosphere’s the final
    of the four major groups
    Including anything thats living
    That also includes you

    Microbes, animals, plants
    birds and insects alike
    Are all part of the Biosphere
    thats true and alright

    Earth has four major
    Geological Subsystems
    I will teach you in this song
    I hope you learn and listen

    Here’s one of many examples
    of how these Spheres interact
    There are so many different ways
    they help us live and thats a fact

    When Volcanos erupt
    from the (Geosphere)
    It releases particles and ash
    in to the (Atmosphere)

    These particles act as the Nuclei
    that help form Water drops
    Thats the (Hydrosphere) at work
    and it never stops

    When the rain falls to the earth
    This is the (Hydrosphere)
    Which stimulates plants to grow
    which is the (Biosphere)

    The plants create oxygen
    thats released to the (Atmosphere)
    plants also feed animals and humans
    And thats (Biosphere)

    Theres so many more examples
    You can find on your own
    You can research them on your computer
    while sitting at home


    Earth has four major
    Geological Subsystems
    I will teach you in this song
    I hope you learn and listen

    Earth has four major
    Geological Subsystems
    I will teach you in this song
    I hope you learn and listen

    Earth as a System// el nino, plate tectonics, human activity

    5:31

    The uneven heating also controls weather systems. The heat absorbed by the oceans and carried by its currents is constantly being released into the atmosphere. This heat and moisture drive atmospheric circulation and set weather patterns in motion. The weather patterns then influence vegetation, as well as erosion and sediment transport.
    Ever since the first photos were sent back from space, our view of Earth has changed. Remote sensing instruments, such as satellites, allow us to better understand the interrelationships between the different subsystems. For instance, recordings made by remote and Earth-based instruments show that significant surface warming has occurred over the past three decades. Knowing this, scientists are working to determine how this will affect — and already is affecting — the entire Earth system. astronomy

    A brief overview to the area of Earth Systems Science where we will be looking at the different spheres that make up Earth as a complex adaptive system.

    Transcription:
    Earth systems science is the interdisciplinary study of earth as a complex system, composed of multiple physical and biological process that interact within cycles or spheres to give rise to the overall state of the earth as an entire systems.

    Of cause people have been studying earth for a long time, geologies study the formation of rocks, metrologies are interested in the atmosphere and so on,
    With all of these different domains supported by the deep understanding of our physical environment that physics has built up over the past few centuries.

    But it is only more recently that satellites have started to allow us to see earth as an entirety and human activity has begun to have a significant enough effect to alter earth systems making it increasingly important for us to be able to model and manage them.

    From space we can view the net results of earths complex interactions and with high-tech sensors on land and in the ocean, we are getting an clear idea of its overall make up, from this researchers in different domains are discovering how their pieces of the puzzle are related to each other.

    Earth systems science then tries to develop models that gives an integrated picture of how all these parts fit together, the first of these models is of earth as a systems in space with inputs and outputs of energy or radiation from the sun, with this energy being the primary factor in driving the dynamics process within the system.


    As opposed to focusing on the static properties of earths individual components
    Earth systems science instead takes a more dynamic view of the world, studying the ways energy and materials cycle through the different subsystems or what are called -spheres

    Earths different sphere are largely defined by the different phases of mater they are composed of thus the atmosphere is composed of gasses, the hydrosphere of liquid water and the lithosphere solid minerals added to this is the biosphere
    The sum of all biological material and processes.

    Within each sphere a process called a cycles take place, for example in the lithosphere we have the rock cycle driven by the thermal energy within earth's interior that releases minerals through ocean ridges and volcanoes that are weathered as they cycle through earths crust and are eventual subducted returning to their origin



    The hydro cycle driven by the thermal energy of the sun, cycles water between the earths surface and atmosphere through the process of evaporation, condensation and precipitation, this process helps to distribute moisture to support ecosystems at a variety of locations

    The atmosphere is a layer of gases surrounding the planet that is held in place by gravity, it is the primary vehicle of temperature and climate regulation through the Cycle of carbon in and out of the atmosphere where it functions, through the green house effect to trap the suns heart.

    The biosphere is the relatively thin layer of Earth's surface that supports all biological activity on earth. The biosphere is a system also characterized by the continuous cycling of matter and energy in the form of the flow of solar energy and nutrient mineral cycles.

    Solar energy flows through the biosphere along a unidirectional path, as the suns energy is inputted through plant photosynthesis and process up through what are called trophic levels form primary producers to herbivores and on to predators and apex predators.

    Along side the flow of energy through food webs it the cycling of mineral nutrients the core substances required for the construction of biological materials and processes, carbon, water, oxygen, nitrogen have been continuously cycled through the biosphere from one generation to the next for billions of years

    These different spheres interact to create a unique state or ecosystem, an ecosystems is the combination of a community of biological organism and a particular physical environment with which they interact...

    (Looking at controls)
    We are currently orbiting Planet Earth.

    (Listening to headphones attached to controls)
    I am picking up some noises...sounds like... cool music...

    CHORUS
    Such a beautiful...such a beautiful...such a beautiful...
    Beautiful world.

    EARTH
    I'm the Earth, and for what it's worth
    25 thousand miles is my girth
    I've got more than 7 billion people living on me
    All across my amazing geography
    Check out my mountains, valleys, trees so tall
    And I've got lakes, rivers and waterfalls
    Volcanoes, craters, swamps with alligators
    Tropical islands at my equator
    The North and South poles have lots of ice
    Only Polar Bears say, This weather's nice!
    I've got so much land, yeah, I'm so immense
    I've got 7 - (STORYBOT 2: Seven!) - 7 different continents
    North and South America, Europe, Asia
    Africa, Antarctica, and Australia
    But the biggest thing,
    Everybody can see
    Is that I gotta lotta water, all over me!
    I have oceans with lobsters, whales, otters
    Three quarters of me is covered in water
    I orbit the sun - (THE SUN: I'm so hot) - that's his line
    And the moon orbits me - (THE MOON: It's my time to shine)
    I'm filled with life, both big and small
    The most beautiful planet of all.

    CHORUS
    Such a beautiful...such a beautiful...such a beautiful...
    beautiful world.

    It is the home to every boy and girl

    It's a beautiful, beautiful world. I'm getting homesick.

    Me too. Computer, take us home.
