Earth scientists research the specific and complex earth system studying its composition, structure, history, material and energy flow and transformation processes, raw material and energy resources to be utilised, values to be protected together with features and processes that may prove to be hazardous for mankind. Earth scientists aim to understand both the long-term and short-term results of both global and regional natural and anthropogenic processes. The numerous applied fields of earth sciences (e.g. raw material exploration, water supply protection, volcanology, seismology, weather forecast, alternative and renewable energy resources) fundamentally influence the quality of our everyday life, technology in our civilisation and our relationship with the natural environment.
