How would you reply? In my opinion, studying Earth Science is important for modern humankind in many ways. Firstly, earth science is connected with Geology, Oceanography, Meteorology, and Astronomy. It is all about the whole world where human beings are living. Secondly, it is also important to know for humans because by studying earth science we can know about the weather, natural hazards, and spaces.
As far as I have read the lecture, I have learned many interesting facts about the earth system. A very interesting fact is earth’s system includes a hydrosphere, Atmosphere, Biosphere, and Geosphere. By adding these four, the earth rotates as a system to let living individuals survive on this planet. For the nature of the scientific inquiry, scientists use the methods of (1)Hypothesis which is explained without testing,(2) Theory which is confirmed fact and already tested, and (3) Paradigm, a theory that is explained by a large number of interrelated aspects of the natural worlds.
