As inhabitants of Earth we experience daily the interactions of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere, and biosphere while observing the changes that these interactions produce over time. What we learn about our surroundings begins with what we experience and how we can connect those experiences to what we already know. Our field laboratory for this study of Earth is the Big Island of Hawaii where the change dynamics of Earth's interacting spheres can be observed through some dramatic encounters with Nature. Join us as we travel the island seeking to unravel the mystery of how a complex rainforest biome could develop on an island of volcanic rock.
