1. How do earth systems affect each other? The earth has various systems like the biosphere, geosphere, atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere. All of these systems interact with each other to cause different effects on earth like climate and geography. Earthquakes fall under the geosphere and in some cases affect the hydrosphere when they cause Tsunamis. 2. How can an understanding of environmental science aid in handling natural disasters? Understanding of environmental science can aid in the handling of naturals disasters because it would allow us to understand why these disasters are happening, and what we can do to prevent them. 3. What efforts can we make to create a sustainable future? In order to create a sustainable future we must; - Recycle more - Stop using plastic - Use biodegradable materials
Natural disasters are very extreme and sometimes can not be controlled at all. Many people may not be aware of the way certain natural disasters may work but our project is to show and let you visually see how the volcano works.
Natural disasters are very extreme and sometimes can not be controlled at all.

The natural disaster we will be discussing about is volcanoes. Volcanoes are a very dangerous thing in the world that naturally happens.
There really isn’t a safe place during a tornado, the only thing you can try to do is to go to the lowest floor in your building and get away from any windows. Seek Shelter Lock Doors Cover Windows Stay Inside Go into the Cellar Source 3: https://www.cdc.gov/features/tornadosafety/index.html
The Tri-State Tornado of Wednesday, March 18, 1925, was the deadliest tornado in United States history 695 deaths. Destroying towns it went from southern eastern Missouri all the way through to southwestern Indiana. People were shocked because the weather forecast was normal and since the 19th century the word “tornado” was banned because it caused a panic. The winds were about 300 miles per hour and it lasted for as long as 3.5 hours going about 219 miles long. Just for an idea an average tornado lasts about 10 minutes, goes 40-100 mph, and goes for 3 miles. About 3,000 people were injured, left homeless, and hungry. source- Britannica, The Editors of Encyclopaedia. “Tri-State Tornado of 1925.” Encyclopædia Britannica, Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc., https://www.britannica.com/event/Tri-State-Tornado-of-1925
- How do earth systems affect each other?-Earth systems are all connected by energy flow or matter. In this case, earthquakes(part of the geosphere) are responsible for the formation of tsunamis.
- How can an understanding of environmental science aid in handling natural disasters?-If we learn more ways to prevent or stop earthquakes we would be able to prevent casualties and millions of dollars to fix damages.
- What efforts can we make to create a sustainable future?-Start by avoiding the changes to the geological formation.
My reaction to our findings was surprising, I wouldn’t have ever thought that the hydrosphere and the geosphere would be connected, especially when it comes to natural disasters.
I've learned that Earth Systems affected each other by going through something similar to the Dynamo Effect. This means that whatever happens in one sphere of our Earth System effects another sphere by either completely altering it's state or adding to what's already there. As for a simple example, if participated clouds were to absorb water from the ocean and return it to a landmass with enough rainfall then it may have the chance of causing floods to occur. Studies like this can help us better understand how we can avoid natural disasters so they never happen again. We can use the measurements of what happens in each sphere to determine how we can approach it, and what solution will be the most beneficial . So the efforts we can make to help better our future is to be more vocal, active, and aware of what's happening around us. My reactions to the findings of the group weren't as surprising because to me it seemed like these actions pertained to common sense. However, I am interested in how it's formed.
What is there to know about tornados? Well, a lot more than you probably remember from 5th grade. A tornado is a perfect example of how the earth systems intermingle. As I said in my group's google doc, (which you can find at the bottom of my post,) the spheres that are affected the most during a tornado are the atmosphere, tornados have extremely high pressures of wind, which contacts the geosphere, the surfaces of the earth, which sometimes kills or injures people which would be a part of the biosphere cause they were/are alive. Knowing how tornados form allow you to spot one, and stay safe if one were to occur where you are living. To ensure a better future, this knowledge can be used one day to maybe develop a way to prevent natural disasters.

1. How do earth systems affect each other? They help each other for example, the hydrosphere helps the biosphere to stay alive. How can an understanding of environmental science aid in handling natural disasters? Understanding this could possibly help us prevent natural disasters. What efforts can we make to create a sustainable future? We could recycle.
2. Our findings were really interesting. It was fascinating to see how the hydrosphere and geosphere interact.
My reaction on my findings is that they were really interesting. It was interesting because I got to find out how tsunamis affect the different earth spheres in different ways. I also learned things about how to survive during a tsunami, cause I didn’t know beforehand if you want to survive a tsunami you got to get to the top of your house. The other thing I learned about during my research is how tsunamis affect the ground in a devastating way and it is really interesting. The other thing that I learned that was really interesting was how tsunamis happened because beforehand, I thought it was just a giant wave but no its way more complicated than that and it's interesting finding out what things have to go on to make a tsunami occur the way it does. 1. How do the earth systems affect each other? Earth systems affect each other because they both give different things to each other. An example would be how the hydrosphere helps out the biosphere because it provides water to the things living in the biosphere. 2. How can an understanding of environmental science aid in handling natural disasters? It can help aid in natural disasters cause if we understand the environment more we can help out with these natural disasters and make sure we are prepared for them. It can also help us figure out how these natural disasters are happening and how we can stop them from happening if there is any way at all. 3. What efforts can we make to create a sustainable future? We can make the effort to learn more about environmental science we can also take the step to learn more about how natural disasters affect the world and the people around it. We can also learn about what we can do to protect the environment. Pictures
