Earth Science and Geology: An Introduction

Earth Science is the study of processes that mold the surface of the earth. Plate tectonics is the great driving engine that shapes the mountain ranges and ocean trenches of the earth. Plate boundaries are the areas of volcanoes, earthquakes, and mountain building. Weather and the atmosphere drive erosion and the cycling of rocks from mountains to the ocean.
