Earth Science - Instruction in the Earth sciences includes the application of traditional geophysical techniques to environmental assessment and monitoring. One of the most important applications is the discovery and management of petroleum and mineral resources which accounts for a large part of the Canadian economy.|
Atmospheric Science - The most important application in the field of Atmospheric Science is weather prediction. In Canada, weather is undoubtedly one of the most influential factors in our daily social and economic activities and is also a major concern in travel safety. Increasingly, human impact on natural systems such as the ozone layer, sea levels and rain forests pose environmental hazards whose assessment depends on our understanding of the composition, chemistry and dynamics of the Earth, its atmosphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere.
