Earth Science focuses more on the study of minerals, rocks, geophysics, geochemistry, and geomorpology while Environmental Science focuses more on the broader picture such as how environmental systems work together.


Keep in mind that the two are often used interchangeably and in many cases people specialize in Earth and Environmental Sciences, so there always appears to be an overlap between the two.
