Why Earth Science?

Watch these 10 short videos explaining what we all should know about the science of the Earth — how the planet's land, water, air, and life systems interact. The American Geological Institute has developed these videos to bring to life the core concepts identified by the U.S. National Science Foundation-funded Earth Science Literacy Initiative ( For educational activities exploring each of the nine Big Ideas of Earth Science illustrated in the videos, visit Earth Science Week (

In Why Earth Science?, stunning video sequences and images illuminate the importance of knowing how Earth works and illustrate opportunities for careers in the Earth sciences.

Introduction to Earth Science

This HD dramatic video choreographed to powerful music introduces the viewer/student to the wonder of Earth Science. It is designed as a motivational trailer to be shown in classrooms by Earth Science and Physical Science teachers in middle, high school and college as a visual Introduction to the beauty and complexity of the planet Earth.

Music is Imperatrix Mundi by Jo Blankenburg

Please rate this video and feel free to comment. If you like it, please help me spread the word by posting links on your media websites. The more students who can enjoy these dramatic videos, the better!

To view all of my videos in Biology, Earth Science, Astronomy, Chemistry and Physics, subscribe to my channel at: I will be releasing new videos periodically.

I wish to thank all the quality video and music producers whose postings enabled me to assemble this video for educational use. To best enjoy this video, turn up your speakers. The music is very powerful and dramatic!

I can customize this video to add your name or school name at the end credits, for a very modest fee. If interested, email me at fsgregs@comcast.net

Until recently, you were able to download my videos for free from my other video storage site (vimeo.com). Recently, however, they began charging a significant membership fee to enable that feature, so I regret that downloading from there is no longer available. However, you can search for and obtain free download addons for your browser that will allow you to download my videos from either YouTube or Vimeo.

Everything You Need to Know About Planet Earth

Planet Earth is this solid thing you are standing on right now. In your everyday life you don't really waste a thought about how amazing this is. A giant, ancient, hot rock. How did it come into existence and how big is it really? You will be surprised. The ground you are standing on is just a very, very small part of the big picture.

THANK YOU FOR AN AWESOME YEAR YOUTUBE! :D

Thomas who makes our MUSIC has his own company now!! So if you want music as awesome as ours or just take a look at the music from the last videos, here is Thomas' new website and his soundcloud at & epic-mountain.com & soundcloud.com/epicmountain.

Videos, explaining things. Like evolution, time, space, global energy or our existence in this strange universe.
We are a team of designers, journalists and musicians who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.

Earth Science: Crash Course History of Science #20

It's Earth Science time!!!! In this field, natural philosophers were asking questions like, what’s up with fossils? Are they the remains of extinct organisms? Or are they so-called “sports of nature”—rocks that just happen to look like living things but don’t /mean/ anything? And most importantly, how old is… everything?

Earth is currently in a period of warming. Over the last century, Earth's average temperature rose about 1.1 F (0.6C). In the last two decades, the rate of our world's warming accelerated. Scientists predict that the globe will continue to warm over the course of the 21st century. Is this warming trend a reason for concern? After all, our world has witnessed extreme warm periods before, such as during the time of the dinosaurs. Earth has also seen numerous ice ages on roughly 11,000-year cycles for at least the last million years. So, change is perhaps the only constant in Earth's 4.5-billion-year history.

Earth and Environmental Science | Careers, Concentrations, and Courses

Part 2:

This video covers the Earth and Environmental science major and places an emphasis on earth science, soil science, geology, and hydrology. The Earth and Environmental Science major is a broad major that allows students a lot of flexibility in pursuing topics that most interest them.

In this video, you will be given an introduction to the major, and learn that Earth Science combines many fields into a unified physical science that covers topics such as the atmosphere, climate, ecology, soil science, environmental earth sciences, some aspects of geology, geophysics, plate tectonics, and hydrology.

This video will give you an introduction to the Earth Science major and will give you a brief overview of the courses and applications for Earth Science. Be sure to stick around and continue onto part two.

Water is all around us, and its importance to nearly every natural process on earth cannot be underestimated. The water cycle is the movement of water around the Earth in all its forms, from the ocean to the atmosphere, to snow, soil, aquifers, lakes, and streams on land, and ultimately backs to the ocean. This video explains what the water cycle is and how important it is to life on earth.
