Earth Science is the study of Earth and its atmosphere. The Earth Science Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps Earth Science scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
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 can harness its resources, protect ourselves from its ferocity, and preserve it in the face of human activity. Earth science is a crossroads to many sciences and research areas like Chemistry and Geology. SSRN is dedicated to highlighting those connections.
