|The University of Florida Thompson Earth Systems Institute is advancing communication and education of Earth systems science in a way that inspires Floridians to be effective stewards of our planet.|
What is Earth systems science? The study of the interactions among air, water, land and life on Earth, and how these systems are influenced by human activities.

Our vision is to lead the way to a healthier planet by cultivating a responsible and curious society that values, trusts and has access to science. Read more.
