Environmental science involves the study of interactions between physical, biological and chemical aspects of the environment. It provides an interdisciplinary and integrated approach while also taking a quantitative approach for investigating environmental systems.

The discipline also monitors the environmental quality and analyzes what impact human actions have on ecosystems. The subject also studies and examines strategies that may be implemented to restore ecosystems into their original state. Study in environmental science is essentially interdisciplinary. Most environmental issues that are dealt in environmental science have to do with human activities and the study of many other fields like economics and law are applied in conjunction with the discipline.

When writing a research paper or term paper, the first thing that you come across is to come up with a good topic. There are many ways to do this. Try brainstorming, daydreaming, asking questions and also thinking out of the box to get to your topic. Once you have selected a topic, writing the Introduction is the next part. This should include a thesis statement. The body of the paper should be made up of several sub-points that support as well as explain your thesis from my writing service. The conclusion should include restating your thesis statement and somehow relate the points you have made in the paper to your thesis. Full referencing of the paper in a documentation style like the CSE/CBE Style is expected as well.

Environmental science includes studies on climate change, the use of natural resources, biodiversity, conservation, sustainable development and soil contamination as well as pollution. The study of the environment in a substantive way was originated in the 1960s and 1970s, as a separate discipline. The main reason for this has been the constant need for a comprehensive multi-disciplined team that can analyze complex environmental issues and also the environmental laws as well as protocols of investigation that have made it necessary to further study the impact of human activities on our environment.

The NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) was enacted in 1969 and introduced requirements for analysis of specific environmental damage caused by major projects. Subsequently, many states introduced similar legislation to assess and control environmental damages.
The main branches of environmental science are:
1. Ecology
2. Environmental microbiology
3. Atmospheric sciences
4. Environmental chemistry
5. Environmental assessment
6. Geosciences
As a result, the documentation and study of the environment and consequences of human activities have notices a substantial increase.
