The term "biosphere" was coined by geologist Eduard Suess in , which he defined as the place on Earth's surface where life dwells..

Vernadsky), preceding the introduction. The oceans cover 70% of the Earth’s surface, and are critical components of Earth’s climate system. This new edition of Encyclopedia of Ocean Sciences summarizes the breadth of knowledge about them, providing revised, up to date entries as well coverage of new topics in the field.. New and expanded sections include microbial ecology, high latitude systems and the cryosphere, climate and.
Meteorology is a branch of the atmospheric sciences which includes atmospheric chemistry and atmospheric physics, with a major focus on weather study of meteorology dates back millennia, though significant progress in meteorology did not occur until the 18th 19th century saw modest progress in the field after weather observation networks were formed across .
