505 0 |aIntroduction : Earth and life as natural systems -- The setting : the Big Bang and galaxy formation -- The raw material : synthesis of elements in stars -- Preliminary fabrication : formation of organic and inorganic molecules -- The heavy construction : the formation of planets and moons from a solar nebula -- The schedule : quantifying the timescale with radionuclides -- Interior modifications : segregation into core, mantle, crust, ocean, and atmosphere -- Contending with the neighbors : moons, asteroids, comets, and impacts -- Making it comfortable : running water, temperature control, and sun protection -- Establishing the circulation : plate tectonics -- Internal circulation : mantle convection and its relationship to the surface -- Linking the layers : solid earth, liquid ocean, and gaseous atmosphere -- Colonizing the surface : the origin of life as a planetary process -- Dealing with the competition : the roles of evolution and extinction in creating the diversity of life -- Energizing the surface : coevolution of life and planet to create a planetary fuel cell -- Exterior modifications : the record of oxidation of the planetary surface -- Planetary evolution : the importance of catastrophes and the questions of directionality -- Coping with the weather : causes and consequences of naturally induced climate change -- The rise of Homo Sapiens : access to Earth's treasure chest permits a planetary takeover -- Mankind at the helm : human civilization in a planetary context -- Are we alone? : the question of habitability in the universe.
