Earth science is the study of our planet, from the core to the top of the atmosphere.

Scientists that study the Earth work on wide variety of things, from predicting the weather, the likelihood that a volcano will erupt or an earthquake will strike, to how the climate is affecting the penguin populations.

They also study the Earth in the long term, how the Earth’s magnetic field changes over thousands of years or the effects of climate change a hundred years from now.
