Like the medical sciences, earth sciences deal with a system of existential importance to human life and well-being. Traditional disciplinary labels (e.g. 'geology') fall short when faced with the interconnected web of phenomena that make up the earth system (e.g. the carbon cycle).

To highlight what connects us as earth scientists and to counteract disciplinary fragmentation, we can think of earth science in terms of five highly interconnected phenomena that are of existential importance regardless of how we might study them:
