Earth Science studies are critically important to modern society.  An understanding of the rocks and minerals that make up the solid Earth, and how these materials interact with the atmosphere, the world water supply, and living organisms provides the foundation for all natural and environmental sciences.  All of these factors are critical for understanding how the Earth has changed in the past and how it may change in the future.
