Earth Science is a physical science that looks at the underlying unity and interrelationships of the sciences through study of the earth and its systems. The subject matter, planet Earth, provides a framework for observing and experimenting, making connections to other sciences, and addressing current and topical issues. Areas of study include geology, oceanography, meteorology, astronomy, and hydrology. Current environmental topics are studied in the context of the earth systems they impact. The course emphasizes the development of study, problem solving and laboratory skills. Laboratory investigations and activities are important components of the course. Teachers may assign long-term projects on related topics. Computers are used in some areas for simulation and data analysis.
