AbstractFor Geosystemics we define the science that studies the Earth system from a holistic point of view. Earth is thus considered as a whole and unique far-from-the equilibrium complex system, formed by numerous different parts (sub-systems), which do not act independently but interact each other continuously. Most interactions are nonlinear, so that we can usually say that “resultant is more than the sum of the parts”. Interactions are not only in terms of contrasts but, and mostly, cooperative and mutual organizations. We will see some aspects and properties of this approach with a few examples.
