1. How do the earth systems affect one another? They affect each other in a balanced way, what I mean by this is they all benefit and depend on each other. 2. How can understanding environmental science help when dealing with natural disasters? This can be beneficial to someone in these cases because they may understand the severity of the situation or know how to help themselves in the best way. 3. What efforts can we make to create a sustainable future? We can start by trying to understand what things we put out that affect the balance of life and then strategies ways to better our way of life. Reflection: I learned a lot of interesting things about volcanoes that I didn't know. I thought that this was a really good project because it allowed us to not only research be we were able to take our findings and reflect on them in ways that helped us better understand how volcanoes work.
