Earth Science Research Network

EarthSciRN

The study of our planet is foundational to sustaining life itself. While Earth science is a field with many different aims, the landscape of all Earth science research is the same. From the metallic core to the outer atmosphere, Earth is a masterpiece, and it is through our understanding of it that we are able to harness its resources, protect ourselves from its ferocity, and preserve it in the face of human activity. Our future depends on understanding how the Earth can provide food, water, and energy for our growing population. Earth science is a crossroads to many sciences and research areas like Chemistry and Geology. SSRN is dedicated to highlighting those connections.
