Environmental Science is a multifaceted field of inquiry that focuses on interactions between the solid Earth, its water, its air and its living organisms, and on dynamic, interdependent relationships that have developed between these four components.
Environmental scientists consider how these interrelationships produce environmental change at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. To do this, they integrate knowledge, concepts, data, models and methods drawn from several fields of natural sciences. Environmental scientists strive to understand past and present processes so that reliable and scientifically-defensible predictions can be made about the future.
Environmental scientists and specialists are committed to combating pollution, enforcing policy, and promoting sustainable practices. They must have strong analytical and problem-solving skills to develop science-based policies and actions that protect the environment and maintain or improve society's quality of life.
There is an ever-increasing need of environmental scientists as a result of the emerging challenges, mainly related to the chain reaction impacts of climate change, as well as the assessment and legislation needs of adaptation and mitigation measures.
