A three-kilogram meteorite travels millions of kilometers through Space and crashes through a roof of a home in Virginia. Tornadoes weave erratic paths through the Great Plains, causing loss of life and property. A hurricane lashes the Gulf Coast, resulting in floods and extensive coastal erosion. A tsunami batters the coast of Indonesia, drowning thousands. As a result of heavy rains, the Potomac River floods its banks causing flood damage in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.All of these occurrences are Earth Science events. The Earth is like a very complex machine. Each of the above occurrences impacts some piece of the machine, but they do not all impact the same piece, nor do they impact the Earth in the same way. Earth includes more than just the solid Earth. It also includes Earths oceans and atmosphere, as well as the Universe, of which the Earth is part. Over the course of the year, you will learn about the Earth and the processes and forces that change it, the materials from which it is made, its long history, and its place in the Universe.The scope of Earth is vast.
