Overview

Earth in Our Care is a compelling study of three interactive spheres of the ecosystem: atmosphere (air), litho-hydrosphere (rock that comprises the restless continents and the water that surrounds them), and biosphere (all life sandwiched in between).

Exploring our interconnectedness with the Earth, Maser examines today's problems and, more importantly, provides solutions for the future.
