Earth System Science at Cornell Earth system sciences looks at the integrated whole of the planet,
 

Summary: Earth System Science at Cornell
Earth system sciences looks at the integrated whole of the planet,
including the lithosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, cryosphere and
atmosphere. Important spatial scales for earth system science range from nm to 1000's of
kilometers. Advancing earth system science requires laboratory work, field work, remote
sensing and modeling. There are many scientists across the university whose work
contributes to an understanding of earth system science. We think that organizing
ourselves under an umbrella of Earth system Science will help integrate the research at
Cornell, as well as raise our profile outside of the university and recruit better graduate
students. We envision earth system science at Cornell as complementary to the successful
biogeochemistry initiative. Earth System Science would overlap with biogeochemistry,
for example in biogeochemistry-climate interactions, but different from biogeochemistry
in including a focus on the physics of the earth system. We would like to hold a brain
storming session on how best to organize and leverage the earth system science work at
Cornell (e.g. create web page for recruiting students, conduct joint seminars, etc).
