     Earth and Environmental Sciences is a part of natural science that studies component parts, circulations, and changing mechanisms of the Atmosphere, Geosphere, and the Hydrosphere; that analyzes and predicts the formation and changes of the natural environment. In order to understand Earth and Environmental formation andchanges, the object of Earth and Environmental Sciences offers a method to analyze, predict, and restore various scale of kinetic and material system’s formation, evolution, extinction and interaction between them.These researches are conducted by introducing an applied scientific technology that is based on an understanding of basic science.

    Students study each part of the Earth and Environmental Sciences intensively according to their interests. Namely, they select their major out of Atmospheric Science,Earth System Science, and Oceanography. And with the economical and social growth of our society, many professionals of Earth and Environmental Sciences are required in various fields: government agencies, research institutes, related companies, and broadcasting stations. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree, students go on to an internal or external graduate school, or are employed. Students who obtain a master’s or doctor’s degree within the country accumulate a career as a researcher at abroad universities and laboratories. They stay abroad or return to the homeland to be employed by universities, research institutes, or related companies.
