A geologist should be well versed in chemistry, natural philosophy, mineralogy, zoology, comparative anatomy, botany; in short, in every science relating to organic and inorganic nature...

Charles Lyell

The big questions about the Earth can be answered by the interactions between atmosphere hydrosphere solid earth and biosphere.

Prof. Lars Stixrude - ES

We shouldn't focus too much on the year-to-year variations; it's the long-term trend that is important. All climate models participating in the next IPCC report show that the Arctic will become ice-free in summers as temperatures continue to warm

Prof. Julienne Stroeve - ES

Geology is rapidly taking its place as an introduction to the higher history of man.

James Dwight Dana
