Earth and its Resources
We all share a common planet. We depend on the Earth both as a place to live and as a resource for many aspects of our lives. That is why facing some of our biggest challenges depends on forming a better understanding of the Earth and finding ways use its resources responsibly. Science can help us with these challenges. This section of Frontiers for Young Minds will include articles from across the fields of Earth science, energy research, marine science, climate science, and environmental science as it relates to the Earth system. Because these concepts relate to so many other disciplines - from chemistry to engineering - there will also be articles from scientists in other subject areas whose work helps to study these issues. Earth and its Resources wants to provide the most up-to-date research to the next generation who will live with, and study, these planet-wide questions.
