This session covers the below topics:
The knowledge gained from all of these types of measurements allows oceanographers to do many things including, but not limited to:
Marine Geology is widely recognized as a distinct sub-discipline of geoscience. The geology of marine realms is fundamentally different from the geology of continents
Ecologists could share their novel research insights under this session focusing the below mentioned topics:
Petrology studies all kinds of rocks produced by the nature. Mineralogy and petrology stand as the backbone of the geosciences. Complete knowledge of minerals and rocks and the process of formation and association are mandatory for practicing professionals and advanced students.
Geoscience is a wide-ranging set of disciplines, including all aspects of the study of the solid and molten parts of the Earth and how they interact with our environment. Hutton explained the unconformable relationship between ancient strata in terms of a protracted record of modern Earth processes, and so rejecting the prevalent geologic theory of the time: catastrophism.
Public concern for environmental issues, e.g. emissions of volatile compounds, water pollution through plant nutrients and agrochemicals, has resulted in research and technology development in the field of environmental engineering. Agricultural engineering has therefore to keep pace with trends in science and technology, e.g. fundamental developments in the information and communication technology, biotechnology, materials technology, microelectronics and mechatronics.
Environment health covers Environmental agents and chemical compounds in nature, as well as pharmaceutical compounds which might be synthesized for clinical use by of human beings. Similarly, converting tendencies in health care and an emphasis on prevention, coupled with computer literacy, all support the need for effectively available information about the impacts of hazardous substances in the environment on individual and public health.
Astronomy and astrophysics are the study of objects and phenomena that are found beyond our solar system. This combines theoretical simulations and observation with both terrestrial and space-craft-borne instruments of the electromagnetic radiation and high-energy particles emitted by celestial bodies.
Environmental Sociology promotes research and professional activities that explore the relationships between social systems and the ecosphere, including interdisciplinary work that explores interactions within and between institutions, social groups, and natural and built environments.
The effects of increased CO2 in the atmosphere and changing climatic conditions are expected to include:
Does it really matter if many species go extinct? The world would certainly be a less interesting place with less biodiversity, but would it affect us?
As a subject of study, the atmospheric sciences encompass all the processes that occur in the atmosphere, together with its links with other systems, mainly the hydrosphere, cryosphere, lithosphere, biosphere, and outer space. The coupling of the Earth’s atmosphere and underlying surface through mass and energy fluxes has an important role in atmospheric chemistry and physics in addition to boundary layer meteorology and ecosystem research.
