The rapidly declining energy resources and the cutthroat demand for energy, by various industries and manufacturing units, have brought the subject area of Earth Sciences to the fore. The subject area promises immense and significant career options and opportunities to students pursuing it. Earth science, also known as Geo science, is an umbrella term that includes the study of all the four spheres of the Earth, the lithosphere, the biosphere, the atmosphere, and the hydrosphere. These are then narrowed down into more specific fields of study. Earth scientists study the impact of anthropogenic activities on our environment and then relate them to various disaster management programs. Earth sciences have many practical implications, and exert towards building a qualitative understanding of how our planet works and have evolved over time.

The increasing demand for energy, backed with the opportunity of exploration, provides colossal career options in the aforementioned field. The rapidly evolving climatic factors require an intense understanding of the earth's sustainability, by monitoring Earth's dramatic changes and contributing to an enhanced eco-critical perspective towards our planet.
