From Microns to Mountains

The Earth formed almost 4.6 billion years ago by processes that occur on time scales of millions of years to fractions of a second. Whether looking at tiny crystals under a microscope, developing 3D numerical models, or climbing up high to study glacier-capped mountains, Earth scientists investigate the processes (in time and space) that form the Earth on which we live.
