Earth Science or Geoscience includes all fields of natural science related to the planet Earth. This is a branch of science dealing with the physical, chemical, and biological complex constitutions and synergistic linkages of Earth’s four spheres, namely biosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and geosphere. Geoscience can be considered to be a branch of planetary science, but with a much older history. It encompasses four main branches of study, the lithosphere, the hydrosphere, the atmosphere, and the biosphere, each of which is further broken down into more specialized fields. — Wikipedia

Earth Sciences (Encyclopædia Britannica)
Earth Sciences (Wolfram Alpha)

Earth System Science (ESS) is the application of systems science to the Earth.In particular, it considers interactions and ‘feedbacks’, through material and energy fluxes, between the Earth’s sub-systems’ cycles, processes and “spheres”—atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, geosphere, pedosphere, lithosphere, biosphere, and even the magnetosphere. — Wikipedia
