4 GEOLOGY 12 WEEKS OF LOOKING AT ROCKS That’s what you signed up for, right?

5 NO! So what are we going to look at?

6 Geology is not simply the study of rocks. Geology: A scientific study of the Earth’s processes and materials.

7 Origin of the Earth

8 Earth Materials Atoms and molecules Minerals Continents Rocks

9 Geologic Processes Rivers

10 Caves

11 Volcanoes

12 Glaciers

13 Geologic Processes Anthropogenic Impacts Energy Resources Erosion

14 Geologic Processes Meteorites Plate Tectonics (Mountain Building)

15 Geologic Processes Earthquakes

18 Everything we use comes from the Earth Particularly in the form of natural resources. Most provided through geologic knowledge. Construction - cement, concrete and asphalt Fuel, light and heat - oil, gas and coal Water Prediction and avoidance of hazards, earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, landslides, erosion.
