|Description:||Ever wonder why volcanoes erupt? Or where the best diamond deposits are—and where new ones are going to be formed? Or maybe you’re curious about why our climate is changing. The discipline of earth sciences play a crucial role in answering questions like these about today’s complex world. Studying earth sciences gives you insights into the Earth’s evolution, composition, processes, and future.
