Description: Critical Zone (CZ) science aims to understand how rock, soil, water, air, and biota influence Earth as a habitable system. Here we develop the concept that to achieve environmental sustainability, society must first understand the CZ, its natural processes and services, and how those processes operate with and without humanity.
