Planet Earth is an amazing machine, and we – and our future – are riding on it. This DVD introduces students to the Earth system’s primary interacting subsystems (the biosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere); the nitrogen, carbon, and water cycles; and three surface processes: weathering, mass-wasting, and erosion. The greenhouse effect, the impact of acid rain on the environment and diminishing freshwater resources around the world are considered as well.
