Geology and geoscience - introductionGeology (from the Greek gea=earth and logos=study) is the natural science about the solid Earth, in particular the rocks it is composed of and the internal and external processes that shape it.
Select from available categories:
Introduction to Plate Tectonics
: The Earth's upper, rigid layer is broken into several plates which are in constant motion to one another. Most earthquakes and volcanoes occur as result of these plate boundaries.
: Lists and maps of earthquakes in the world in near real time. Country lists, earthquake archive, and I-felt-it reports.
Volcanoes in the Solar System
: The Earth is not the only place with volcanic activity. Active volcanism also occurs at at least 3 other bodies in our Solar System.
Igneous or magmatic rocks
: The most primitive rock type forms when magma (molten rock) solidifies - either inside the earth (plutonic rocks) or during volcanic eruptions (volcanic rocks). A short overview.
