Earth system science is a new holistic approach to studying the Earth as a whole system of many interacting parts. Examples: the Ocean, the atmosphere, the continents, lakes and rivers, soils, plants, animals Population of animals, single mountain range; isolation, numerous interaction among all the parts Earth system science is a new approach to studying the earth A new science requires new tools, the reverse is also true New science arises when new tools allow for different kinds of observation and measurement which leads to innovative ways of thinking about the phenomenon. Earth system science requires observations of Earth at various skills and the handling of large amounts of data from many different locations. Such a as NASA, the national aeronautics space administration relays that were uniquely positioned to turn the scientific instrumentation originally developed for space exploration to a new use and thus began to format a study program that studies environmental changes from outer space. Observations of all types on Earth of all scales contribute to our understandings of the Earth’s system. But the quintessential tool of Earth system science is not only based off of remote sensing. Remote sensing is the continuous or repetitive collection of information about a target from a distance. Remote sensing beneath the ocean has led to the discovery of life near deep sea, revealing an entire new species, food chains, and ecosystems above all other ways of gathering evidence continually remind us that each part of the earth interacts with and is dependent on all other parts. Geographic Information Systems provide ways for scientists to store and analyze vast amounts of data in which all the data can be analyzed and turned into useful mass. Several images can be layered and new data and images can be ride from various layers. A system is any portion of the universe that can be isolated from the rest of the universe for the purpose of observing and measuring changes. By observing and measuring changes, systems can be used to study complex problems. A system is a concept we define to do the limits of our study. It can be large or small, simple or complex. You could chose to observe the contents of a beaker in a laboratory experiment or an entire lake. Systems must have some boundaries that isolate the contents from the rest of the universe. By observing and measuring changes, we use the systems concept to study complex problems. The mountain, river, and lake diagram here shows the simple systems. Some of its components sub systems are in these
