About Earth Science Week:
Earth Science Week promotes understanding and appreciation of the value of Earth Science research and its applications and relevance to our daily lives. Since October 1998, the American Geosciences Institute has organized this international event to help the public gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth Sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth. More than 30 different countries have participated at the event so far.
"Earth's Connected Systems," the theme of Earth Science Week 2014, engages young people and others in exploring the ways that geoscience illuminates natural change processes. By deepening our understanding of interactions of Earth systems -- geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere -- Earth science helps us manage our greatest challenges and make the most of vital opportunities.
