Students are introduced to four major components of the Earth system: the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and pedosphere. They start to apply this knowledge as they visit the local study site to identify elements of these four spheres and infer connections among them. The investigation concludes with students making predictions about ways that a change in the characteristics of one component of their study site might affect the characteristics of other components.

Most commonly called quinoline, this compound is naturally found in coal tar. It was first extracted in 1834 by German chemist F. Runge and is now used as a flavoring agent, preservative, disinfectant and solvent. It can also be used to make fungicides, dyes, rubber chemicals, and drugs (especially anti-malarial medicines). It is one of several compounds that add to the bitterness in coffee. Although it is safe in our food, it is highly toxic in its vapor form. If inhaled, acute exposure can irritate respiratory tract and cause headaches, nausea, or a coma.

1,2-Dichloronaphthalene is a PCN (polychlorinated naphthalenes) which is synthesized in a mixture of several congeners, ranging from thin liquids to hard waxes to high melting point solids. PCNs have been used as waxes and impregnants (for protective coatings), water repellents, and wood preservatives. The major sources of release of chlorinated naphthalenes into the environment are likely to be from waste incineration and disposal of items containing chlorinated naphthalenes to landfill. PCNs are no longer produced due to their toxicity. Like related compounds (such as PCBs), chlorinated naphthalenes have been demonstrated to be inducers of the cytochrome P-450 (CYP) dependent microsomal enzymes. The environmental impact of PCNs has not been extensively investigated, and PCN concentrations have only been measured in the environment in a few rare cases. Chlorinated naphthalenes are expected to adsorb onto soil and sediments to a large extent, and have been identified to do as such in drainage ditches and sediments from Florida and the San Francisco bay. PCNs have also been identified in birds of prey in Britain and the Netherlands.

1, 2-Dichloroethane production was first reported in the United States in 1922. It is a clear liquid with a chloroform-like odor. It is sparingly soluble in water and soluble in most organic solvents. When heated to decomposition, it produces toxic fumes of hydrochloric acid. The largest usage of this compound is for the production of vinyl chloride monomer, which is used to produce polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It can also be used as a solvent, fumigant, degreaser, paint remover and intermediate for other organic compounds. It is also used as an antiknock additive in leaded fuels.

Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) has many uses as a nutritional supplement in both humans and livestock. It is used in humans to treat pernicious anemia, hepatitis, cirrhosis of the liver, and to help maintain the body's metabolism. In its long-effect form (hydroxocobalamin), vitamin B12 is used to treat anemia, growth impediment, improvement in the function of the heart, liver, kidneys and nerves, and general strengthening of the body. In livestock, it is used to improve feed production.

Tetrafluorocyclooctatetraene consists of eight carbon atoms in a linear arrangement. The unique bonding of the carbons in the chain allow for a very unusual "tub-like" conformation of the molecule, allowing for the pi-electrons from each adjacent carbon to overlap more comfortably. This compound is used in industry primarily in computer simulations, in conjuction with other polyenes, to determine concentrations of unknown compounds with similar spectral properties. Biologically, polyenes, such as tetrafluorocyclooctatetraene, are used in polyene antibiotics, where they bind somewhat sufficiently to sterols.

Pyrazine is a heterocyclic aromatic compound and its derivatives are often used as flavoring agents in food. It is most commonly found in coffee and peanut butter. As one of nearly 800 compounds that affect coffee’s aroma, pyrazine is responsible for its bitterness, and in peanut butter, it accounts for the roasted or earthy flavor. Pyrazine is water soluble and its color ranges from clear to pale yellow with a taste threshold of only 1 mg/L. It is a highly flammable irritant, but it poses no safety concern at the levels found in our food.
