MAIN BRANCHES OF EARTH SCIENCE.
Transcript of MAIN BRANCHES OF EARTH SCIENCE.
By Josh Griffin
Geology is the study of the Earth's ground and rocks etc.
Within Geology there are 3 sub-divisions
These are Seismology, Paleontology, and Volcanology.
Seismology is the study of earthquakes and the waves that pass through the Earth.
Paleontology is the study of ancient life.
Yes i am trying to make you dizzy... just saying...
Volcanology is the study of volcanoes.
Oceanography is the study of the ocean.
Alvin was the first manned submarine. It has been in use sense 1964.
The first dive that Alvin made was only about 35 feet under water. Now, after lots of improvements and upgrades, it can dive up to 14,164 feet.
Meteorology is the study the atmosphere. For the most part, Meteorologists research weather and weather conditions.
As technology gets better and better, Meteorologists are able to and do save tons of lives by predicting when storms or hurricanes etc. are supposed to hit specific areas.
Are you dizzy yet?
Astronomy is the study of space: stars, other planets, the moon.... just about anything that is not in Earth's atmosphere.
Special Branches of Earth Science
The special branches include: Ecology, Geochemistry, Environmental Science, Geography, Cartography.
Geochemistry is the distribution of chemical elements and natural compounds on Earth and it's atmosphere.
Environmental science is the study of the interaction between humans and other organisms. These people are the people that will study global warming etc.
Geography is the study of the Earth.
Cartography is the study of maps.
They spend most their time studying and making maps.
(Just for the record, I used the background as my picture.)
Ecology is the interaction of other organisms and how they effect their environment. Ecologists don't study humans as much as the Environmental Science dudes.
