In this course you will be exploring the underpinnings of the major branches of Earth Science, the study of life. Earth Science is a fascinating and vast field. In one school year it would not be possible to cover in depth, every branch of Earth Science. It is my goal, however, to guide you in developing a fundamental knowledge of the core concepts, and principles of Earth Science. This school year you will explore the processes that govern the movement of the earth, weather patterns, astronomy, and ecosystems.
