Today's society is concerned with a multitude of events affecting the Earth system, ranging from natural processes such as ocean circulation, weather systems, and geophysics to concerns like acid rain, ecotoxicology, and the greenhouse effect. To understand the impact of these events on the Earth system and to resolve environmental problems, knowledge of all the earth sciences and how they interact is essential.**The Encyclopedia of Earth System Science is the first encyclopedia to comprehensively cover, in one place, all the earth sciences--including atmospheric science, biogeochemistry, climatology, ecology, geology, geophysics, glaciology, hydrology, meteorology, mineralogy, oceanography, petrology, and numerous other fields.
