Earth Science Week Contests 2012 Winners Announced
"Earth Science Is a Big Job"
Geoscientists study Earth processes in action in many types of places — deserts, forests, mountain tops, rivers, ocean floors, underground, up in the air, and in rural communities and cities alike. Whether they are optimizing land use, harvesting energy resources, ensuring safe water supplies, or forecasting the weather, these scientists monitor natural processes to help improve our lives. In a photograph, capture evidence to show the important work that Earth scientists do in your community. More info.
"Imagine Me, an Earth Scientist!"
Earth scientists — or "geoscientists" — are curious about Earth's land, water, air, and living things. These scientists study systems in nature, such as our planet's environment, natural resources, weather patterns, plant and animal life, and the solar system. Imagine that you are a geoscientist. What would you study? How would you gather information? What tools would you use? Use artwork to show yourself as an Earth scientist. More info.
"Geoscientists Working Together"
Our planet's land, water, air, and living things each affect and are affected by one another. Earth scientists observe these interactions among Earth systems — the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere. How do geoscientists study these interactions to solve problems and seize opportunities in areas such as harnessing energy, farming land, ensuring safe water, preparing for natural disasters, protecting the environment, and building communities? Identify an example of interacting systems, and write a brief essay explaining how Earth scientists work together to improve all our lives. More info.
