Questions about the origins and nature of Earth have long preoccupied human thought and the scientific endeavor. Deciphering the planet’s history and processes could improve the ability to predict catastrophes like earthquakes and volcanoes, to manage Earth’s resources, and to anticipate changes in climate and geologic processes. This report captures, in a series of questions, the essential scientific challenges that constitute the frontier of Earth science at the start of the 21st century.
