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...

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.
