In order to resolve environmental issues, several branches were combined with the purpose of producing complex analysis on concerning issues. These branches include ecology, biology, physics, chemistry, zoology, mineralogy, oceanology, limnology, soil science, geology, atmospheric science, geography and geodesy.
