Geology is the study of the Earth, its origin, structure and composition. Rocks are a key component of our landscape. They give us clues as to how and when it formed, and the materials it contains.

Their structures help unravel the secrets of what the Earth was like in the past. To a geologist, our modern-day landscape speaks volumes.  

The goal of geology as a science is to better understand the processes that acted upon the Earth’s system in the past to help us foresee how geologic events and processes will affect us in the future.

Geology is used every day. Many of us don’t take the time and stop to think about just how much geology affects our surroundings.
