1. How do the earth systems affect each other? The atmosphere supplies the geosphere with the heat and energy needed for rock extraction and erosion. The geosphere, in turn, reflects solar energy back into the atmosphere. The biosphere receives gases, heat, and sunlight energy from the atmosphere. 2. How can an understanding of environmental science aid in handling natural disasters? It can help you with natural disasters cause you will learn what affects the disaster. 3. What efforts can we make to create a sustainable future? We can help with these natural disasters by being able to prepare for them when they happened.
