The science of the earth's crust -- to which, doubtless, will be added that of its interior whenever a man shall come up garrulous out of a well. The geological formations of the globe already noted are catalogued thus: The Primary, or lower one, consists of rocks, bones or mired mules, gas-pipes, miners' tools, antique statues minus the nose, Spanish doubloons and ancestors. The Secondary is largely made up of red worms and moles. The Tertiary comprises railway tracks, patent pavements, grass, snakes, mouldy boots, beer bottles, tomato cans, intoxicated citizens, garbage, anarchists, snap-dogs and fools.
The science which treats: (a) Of the structure and mineral constitution of the globe; structural geology. (b) Of its history as regards rocks, minerals, rivers, valleys, mountains, climates, life, etc.; historical geology. (c) Of the causes and methods by which its structure, features, changes, and conditions have been produced; dynamical geology. See Chart of The Geological Series.
A treatise on the science.
Martial art involving hammering at rocks.
The science dealing with the physical nature and history of the earth.
The science of the Earth that deals with the origin, evolution and composition of the planet. The study of rocks is geology. The study of the ocean floor is also geology. Geophysics, seismology and geochemistry are also studies of geology.
is the science relating to the history and development of the Earth, and is also used to refer to the make-up of the rocks in a particular area.
Study of the Earth, the layers of which it is made up, the processes the layers are subjected to, the structures formed, and of the history of the Earth and its lifeforms.
the science of the physical history of the earth and its life, especially as recorded in the rocks of the crust.
The science of Earth-how it originated, how it evolved, how it works, and how human intervention can affect it.
The study of Earth's origin, history and structure.
study of the earth, including formation and changes in the earth's crust over time
the science that studies the physical properties of the Earth and how it has changed over time. To do this, some scientists study rocks on Earth, and other scientists study other planets.
The field of knowledge that studies the origin, structure, chemical composition, and history of the Earth and other planets.
The study of Earth, its history, its composition, its structure, and the dynamic processes that shape it.
The study of Earth's history as it is recorded in rock.
Field of science concerned with origin of planet Earth, its history, its shape, materials forming it, and processes that are acting and have acted on it.
The science that deals with the earth: the materials, processes, environments, and history of the planet, especially the lithosphere, including the rocks, their formation and structure.
the science of the earth focussing on the composition, structure and origins of different kinds of rocks.
science of the composition, history and structure of the earth's crust.
The branch of science that deals with the physical structure of the earth and the processes that shape it.
The science that deals with the physical history of the earth, the rocks of which it is composed and the physical changes which the earth has undergone or is undergoing. Also refers to the geologic features and processes occuring in a given region of the earth.
The science which investigates the physical history of the earth.
The Geology Section meets on the second and fourth Friday of each month at 8.00 pm. Interested members are always made welcome. A programme is arranged each year to cater for varying degrees of interest; this includes field walks during the lighter evenings of the Summer months. In addition, we look forward to having instruction in the art of thin sectioning rock specimens. Work is being done on two projects started in 1993, one on seismology and the other, a study of the collectors, their method and dates of collecting specimens which now make up the Société's splendid geology collection.
