Every day human activities involve interaction with our planet Earth. Everything around us is built upon the Earth, grows on the Earth, or depends on the environments and internal dynamics of the Earth to some degree. Indeed, Earth’s dynamic processes have strong influence on our society today as they have had at any time in human history, providing both major opportunities as well as challenges. Therefore, the knowledge about the Earth is the key to develop an informed citizenry and a global awareness of a common Planet and a common future. For example, dynamic processes during interaction between the tectonic plates that make up the outer “skin” of Earth provide us with the valuable mineral deposits we need to develop our society, or the arable land and fertile soils needed to sustain it. Likewise, plate boundaries are the locus of hazards such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions that can cause large-scale disruption to, and displacement of, communities and economies. Just as one example, the March 11th, 2011 Tohoku earthquake offshore Japan, shows how a single-event natural disaster caused by one of the dynamic processes of the Earth (plate subduction) can have important socio-economic impacts that range from large-scale infrastructure damage to local and regional population relocation. Understanding the full range of Earth’s dynamic processes will not stop natural disasters like the Tohoku earthquake, but it will provide important information for developing models for their mitigation.
