"Earth’s connected systems"

Geoscience Australia will again be hosting Australia's Earth Science Week celebrations and aligning activities with the international theme, "Earth’s connected systems”.

Earth Science Week aims to engage young people and others in exploring ways that geoscience illuminates natural change processes. By understanding the interactions of Earth’s systems – geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere – Earth science helps us manage our greatest challenges.

Geoscience Australia is conducting its annual photography competition - Top GeoShot and will announce the winners during Earth Science Week.
