Valuable resources in environmental science


We on Earth for valuable resources such as soil, water, metals, industrial minerals, and energy, and we need to know how to find these resources and exploit them sustainably. We can study rocks and the fossils they contain to understand the evolution of our environment and the life within it.Environmental resources include: subsoil resources (mineral and energy), soil resources, biological resources, water resources and land. Through environmental science studies, the government recognized our health and the health of our environment are intertwined. Now, continuing environmental science research and sustainable education are crucial to keeping our ecosystems in balance, reversing damage we've done and preventing future destruction. A resource is a physical material that humans need and value such as land, air, and water. Resources are characterized as renewable or nonrenewable; a renewable resource can replenish itself at the rate it is used, while a nonrenewable resource has a limited supply.
