ResearchEarth and planetary scientists weave the tapestries of deep time and space using the fabrics of biology, chemistry, and physics to understand how our planet works and its remarkable history of life. Earth is a complex planet that works on a multitude of time scales all necessary for life to evolve and be sustained for billions of years. From long-term tectonic to short-term atmospheric processes, Earth’s landscape is constantly evolving. To understand Earth’s earliest history, we look beyond our planet to others within and beyond our solar system.
