This work shows that while geoscientists use a broad range of tools to study a diversity of problems, they share a distinctive set of approaches and perspectives that are particularly well suited to studying something as big, old, and complicated as the Earth system (from the paper). The tools include an understanding deep time and complex systems, learning in the field, and spatial thinking.
