Earth Science Week offers the community a chance to gain a better
understanding and appreciation for the Earth and its mysteries. It also aims
to encourage a sense of responsibility for the use and protection of our
natural resources and environment.

During the week, there will be a range of activities across the country put
on by organisations who are involved in the earth sciences. As the
coordinating body, Geoscience Australia encourages community participation in
a variety of earth science based activities across the nation. 

Geoscientists, teachers, students and the public are all encouraged to
explore and discover the connections between earth science and every day
life.

Earth science is an amazing field of research encompassing every aspect of
life on our earth. Everything from volcanism to meteorology, geography to
marine studies and seismology to palaeontology.  There is something to
capture everyone's imagination and interest.
