A scientist studying climate believes the the earth is growing warmerWhat should the scientist do to find out if this could be true?
See the recordings of temperature over the last 10 or 20 years. This could show an increasing temperature. Also, you could see how much of the ice has melted or the rise of sea level (not to be confused with tides). If the Earth is getting warmer, then more icecaps would melt, resulting in higher oceans and floods. +++ Essentially right but it would need records over a lot more than a couple of decades to show any long-term change because the climate and weather wobble about all the time.

There are many forms of earth science, and therefore many names forthose who study aspects of earth--geologists, geophysicsscientists, ecologists, hydrologists, sedimentologists, and more.
Scientists study various parts of the earth by drilling intosurface layers and studying the crust. They also examine rocks andsamples of gases and lava.
Geologists study the Earth's interior. They also study the Earth'scomposition and all the processes that cause it to change.
Actually the earth's core isn't simply 1 thing. Chemically, the Earth can be divided into the crust, mantle, outer core, and inner core. By comparing material strength, the layering of the earth is categorized as lithosphere, asthenosphere, upper mantle, lower mantle, outer core, and the inner core.… Scientists base their predictions mostly on the density of materials, and how materials would react on the eart's gravity, and sometimes based on seismic activity. (This answer should be expanded) ( Full Answer )
don't no geologists If focusing on the minerals of a rock then it would be classified as a mineralogist.
Scientists who study dinosaur bones are know as paleontologists. They also study other extinct animals such as shellfish,Bacteria,Amphibians,other Reptiles,birds,and Mammals.
they use seismatic waves and study their paths how deep they go their speed etc. they also use earthquakes by recording them and studying how they travel and their speed as well.
Scientist study earth because earth is the place that we envolved on and is the only planet in our solar system that is know to support life and is the fifth- largest planet in our universe.
Earth science is a very vast field but briefly, An earthscientists study about Geology, Various spheres( atmosphere -Meteorology, biosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere - Oceanography,etc) of the earth, etc. . They are generally concerned about how various systems of earthwork. They conduct experime…nt, collect data, analyse data and then makesome assumptions and conclusions. . These assumptions and conclusions are very useful in the fieldof exploration, civil engineering, environmental engineering &science, etc. Earth scientists study planet tectonics and space via imagery.

An Earth scientists can study a number of things. Volcanology,geology and environmental biology are a few examples of Earthsciences.
Scientists use their eyes where the layers have risen above ground and drill core samples to bring to the surface to study. Scientists use GPS tracking to study plate tectonics. by studying how seismic waves refract as they pass through different material.
history=his+story[story of man] . person who doesn't know his history will face an identity crisis . he will have no culture etc.... . It is important so people can know where they come from and how the earth was formed, also know what formed on earth that could help them i.e natural resources
Scientists study the earth's atmosphere and the earth's 5 layers like the crust, core, mantle, inner core, and outer core. They also study the 3 types of rock which are Igneous, Metamorphic, and Sedimentary rocks.
no ahahhaa (= obviouslly i mean comee onn. neptune is sooooo cold you wouldn't be able too live on ittt . youd like, legit frreeeezezeeze. and it also has winds of likeee 2,100 KILOMETERRRRS! thattddd knockk yaa off yaaa feet (= hahahhaa. kkkkkkkkkkthanksbye.
Several things are studied by Earth scientists who specialize intectonics. Plate boundaries, plate tectonics, boundaries,continental drift, mountains, and volcanoes are all studied.
in studying ancient climates, scientists follow an importantprinciple: if plants or animals today need certain conditions tolive, then similar plants and animals in the past needed thoseconditions.
nova-net-nerd (^_^)>- nature could be explained through abstract reasoning and experimentation Nature could be explained through common sense and faith.
Since the determination of the fact that Earth is spherical as opposed to flat, all scientists (after a short lag period) have accepted that it is so.
Answer: In My thinking they are not considering the real meaning behind god. God does not means any religious or spiritual belief . But the nature and its rules are God . The law for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction or any other law combining all laws and every other thing of… nature is god. So whether you say it or not everyone of us believes in god in some way or the other . The names are different like nature is one name , and Jesus is one name , and Siva is one name and Allah is one name but the meaning is same for every word . Hence scientist also believe in God in the name of nature. Creation without a creator is impossible . Answer: Religious belief is independent of science. Scientists are not required to believe in God, and many don't. Besides; you can't take God to a laboratory so it is up to them what they believe or not. Some scientists do believe in God, and ethics may permeate the choices they make as scientists. For example if a scientist believes that "thou shalt not kill", they may decline to work on nuclear weapons. Answer: Nobody "should" believe in God. It is a personal choice. In the case of scientists, if they had a belief that the results of research work could be swayed to produce desired results by prayer, meditation or sacrifices it would negate the purpose of doing research Answer: many scientist have come to the conclusion that there is God. Others simply tend not to bend their elbows and look for all kind of explanations as why that is impossible. It is a matter of personal choice. If scientist were more God concius They would be aware that the science boom in the last days is something that the Bible clearly states and the heat of the last days is something that the Bible clearly states. Why do we have global warming and fast technology development? Those are two specific things the Bible mentions will come together as in the other things that has never failed. Scientist keep looking for answers to this and never come to a single conclution with many formulations Answer: and hypotesis. I think scientists should believe in God because through God all things are possible. Answer: The job of a scientist is to gain an understanding into the workings of Earth's nature and the universe, through observation , experiment, mathematical proof, etc. They should do this objectively, with hard evidence, without the influence of superstition. For these reasons, scientists are generally not religious people , nor should they be. Certain scientific disiplines contradict the bible , such as evolutionary biology, but nevertheless, Christian scientists have made great contributions in many areas. Answer: Check out the Francis S. Collins book called "The Language of God - A scientist presents evidence for belief." Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D. is the former director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). He led the successful effort to complete Human Genome Project (HGP), a complex multidisciplinary scientific enterprise directed at mapping and sequencing all of the human DNA, and determining aspects of its function. President Obama has now nominated Dr. Collins to run the NIH. Source(s): http://www.genome.gov/10000779 http://www.amazon.com/Language-God-Scientist-Presents-Evidence/dp/0743286391 ( Full Answer )
if plants or animals today need certain conditions to live, then similar plants and animals in the past also required those conditions. :)
Earth Scientists primarily study the atmosphere, Oceans,hydrosphere, biosphere and Solid Earth. They use tools fromChemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Biology to draw anunderstanding of how the various Earth systems work.
Scientists believe that there was dust and gas floating in space in a "nebula". Gravity started pulling the dust and all the other things together. Pressure started building up and the nebula got very hot . And that's how the Sun was made. Then the left over dust and gas started forming into tiny li…ttle clumps and those eventually grew and formed into what we now know as the planets. Using all the evidence they have today, scientists believe Earth was formed about 4.5 or 4.6 billion years ago. ( Full Answer )
There are different ways that scientists use to study earth'sinterior. The reactions from seismic waves are used as the mainform of study of the interior parts of the earth.
One interesting thing that has been found about the corona is that it's much hotter than the Sun's surface - while the Sun's surface has a temperature of about 6000 K, the corona has a temperature has a temperature around a million K. This obviously can't be caused by regular heat transfer; scientis…ts are still researching exactly how the energy gets from the Sun to the corona. ( Full Answer )
Firstly, I would just like to say that I'm a creationist, and what I'm about to say reflects that: The evolutionary scientists have not actually found the real beginning of earth, they only have theories. Where as creationists have the "truth" (Really, your question can't be answered without going… into all of this). creationists believe the world was created by God. And, the way they found that out, was because it was in the bible. The bible has been proved correct time and time again, the time when Moses was commanded to build a ark, that has been proven true. The kings mentioned in the old testament? All 100% accurate and true. The fact that they crucified people back then? True, true, and true again. Do you see my point? The bible has been put to just about every historical, bibliographical and geographical test in the books, and proven correct. And, if you want to call this part of it wrong, when even the air in the rocks proves that creationists are right, then be my guest. Now, to acually answer your question: Creationistic scientists looked in the bible, found the book of Geneses and read it, then, they wanted to prove that was right. So, they looked around them for proof that the bible was correct, and low and behold, there it was, everywhere around them. The birds... Really every single animal, think about it this way "oops, I forgot to evolve a stomach, my bad, I'll just have to evolve it now......." We both know a dead animal can't evolve. The rocks, if evolution is true, there should be little if any air still in rocks today, but, sure enough. There is enough air to suggest that the earth is only a few thousand years old. Stars, some red dwarf stars a caculated by "scientists" to be older than the universe itself... How do you explain that? Simple, God created the heavens before he created the earth, and even after he created earth, God still needed to plant life on it. ( Full Answer )
because its made up of many separate but interactive parts or spheres. They are studying how these spheres are interconnected.
Scientists use sound waves to detect what is inside earth. By sending waves down we can study not only the earths structure but also weather its liquid or solid
Yes.Scientist need to study about stem cells beacuse,they can discover so many way to be free from the dangerous diseasess. Edited answer: because we have yet to understand in detail, the mysteries of living matter
Scientists share their findings in various ways: . as papers in journals edited by their peers . in books . in lectures to students and other scientists . at conferences and meetings . in poster sessions . informally eg at lunch or dinner
If you mean the present climate change, then scientists agree that it is caused by man's deforestation and burning of fossil fuels. \n\n Another View: If we are discussing actual major temperature changes though, like the warming trend of the past 11,000 years the answer is far different and th…e changes far ore profound. What is known about our long term history of climate change comes primarily from a single source. The glacial samples from Lake Vostok in Antarctica. These samples tell us, with remarkable detail some interesting things: 1. we know the planet goes through cycles. These cycles are regular and the longest is just over 100K years long. We are in the warmest section of this long cycle currently. This warming is believed to be caused by planetary alignments of the major planets in our solar system. Our orbit around the sun is far from a perfectly circular orbit and the distance our planet is from the sun varies greatly. When all of the larger planets are scattered throughout the solar system we have a far more elliptical orbit the when the larger planets are all on a single side of the sun. This event happens once every 100K years and corresponds to these warm periods. This current cycle has seen an overall warming of about 11 degrees C from this issue. Man's contribution is an unknown portion of a partial contribution of the 0.3 degrees of warming we have seen since 1939. Even if man is the sole contributor, it is nothing compared to this warming. Other portions of our orbit that influence our climate are listed within the Milankovich effect link below. 2. Solar variation is agreed by climate experts to have assisted in temperature variations, including the current cycle of warming. The problem here is that, according to the IPCC, (the United Nations body that is considered the bible of climate change) that while we know it has caused some portion of the current climate change, what portion and how is still "very poorly" understood. (see IPCC links) While there are other issues that have caused the major climate changes of the past few thousand years, these two are in the primary category. . 3. It is also likely that a wobble in the Earth's axis of rotation contributes to these ice age cycles we've seen wax and wane over the past 800,000 years (based on ice cores, so may not be globally representative in details, but it is in the big picture). The cycle has been quite regular the last 400,000 years, and seems to be getting more pronounced and longer with time. Five times in the last 400,000 years we've seen a very steep rise in temperatures to come out of an ice age, then the temperatures begin a much slower descent back into ice age conditions. The most recent cycle (before the sharp warming that started about 25,000 years ago) was most pronounced, with Earth's average temperature possibly fluctuating by as much as 15C from the peak ~125,000 years ago to the nadir ~30,000 years ago. Taking anthropomorphic global warming out of the equation, and looking purely at the ice age cycle, we appear to have reached the end of the cycle's sharp temperature increase several thousand years ago, and should be in the early stages of the gradual cool-down toward an ice age..

cell form and larva in the water witch grew to fish to monkey to man
Excellent question! There are many, many ways to conduct earth research. Thermometers and their constant and predicted use can tell you the climate of an area. Using the ricter scale many times after earth quakes in different places around the world can tell you where the worst earth quakes happen. …Observation of the wilderness in an area of the world can tell you many things about the wildlife there. digging in the ground on a predicted fossile site could possibly tell you about the species of life that lived before you did, and what happened then, and so on.

Seismologists are based on the study of earthquakes while Geologists study the earths core and quakes.
scientist can find out how old the rock is and they can also find out some of earth histotory
How do scientists believe the Badlands have change in climate and appearance since Tyrannosaurus rex roamed the Earth?
Jesus existed, therefore dinosaurs didn't. The badlands never existed, because dinosaurs never existed, because Jesus exists.
Well, if you go to a laboratory and there is a scientist. You found one! But, a mad scientist? Hm. Sorry if this answer is lame but, my thoughts are that you would find a mad scientist on the web, maybe 'Facebook' (probably impossible) or a friend that knows a mad scientist in a laboratory. MOWAHA. … I went to a laboratory and found a scientist. Yep. There stood a scientist in his nice white lab coat, but he didn't look MAD . He talked and walked normally just like you and me. Except he had this paper on the wall that stated that he/she was a graduate from a scientific university like, "MIT". Then I thought maybe there aren't any MAD SCIENTISTS except in books like, "Frankenstein" . Then I came to the answer, you can find MAD SCIENTISTS in movies. I know of one, he's on 'FACEBOOK'. His name is. Look in a mirror. ( Full Answer )
Earth is described as and oblate spheroid. It is mostly spherical but is slightly wider across the equator than across the poles.
most reliable is core samples In ice warmer weather gives deepersnow per seasonal cycle, think artic ice. tree ring dating , also core samples of ocean floor sediment ;man has keep records fr 3 to 5 thousand years mostly in languages nobody speaks ,but nature has always keepamazing records
a quicker way of comparing and characterizing data and it used to detect changes in the climate
One way that scientists can study earth's climate history is by seeing where places and things are eroded.
Most, but not all, until well past the invention of the telescope, which showed that things went around at least one other body (Jupiter), drawing the "Earth-as-the-Center" paradigm into doubt.
The earth's crust may indicate that there is a chance, based on its features that geologists should examine below the crust to locate coal deposits as example. The surface of the earth is part of geography. So, a geologist examines below the crust and a geographer examines the surface of the crust a…nd formations above it. The earth's crust can be 22 miles deep and meets the earth's mantle at that point. ( Full Answer )

They try with all their might, if they are really scientists, todisprove them.
