The Earth System Initiative Has Ended Operations
Earth System Initiative
The MIT Earth System Initiative is a research and educational enterprise that cuts across environmentally-oriented disciplines such as geology, atmospheric science, oceanography, biology, chemistry, and environmental engineering.
In the tradition of innovation that characterizes MIT, this Initiative provides a fertile ground for a new kind of Earth exploration — one that will marshal revolutionary tools and technologies to answer fundamental questions about life on Earth.
By unveiling the processes of physical and biological change, ESI will build the understanding required to sustain the vital functions of the Earth system for future generations.
