Earth Science And Systems

Earth system science seeks to integrate various fields of academic study to understand the Earth as a system.

It considers the interactions between the Earth's "spheres" — atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, geosphere, pedosphere, biosphere, and, even, the magnetosphere — as well as the impact of human societies on these components.  – Wikipedia
