Carbonate Petrography

Carbonate petrography is the study of limestones, dolomites and associated deposits under optical or electron microscopes greatly enhances field studies or core observations and can provide a frame of reference for geochemical studies.

25 strangest Geologic Formations on Earth

The strangest formations on Earth.

What causes Earthquake?

Of these various reasons, faulting related to plate movements is by far the most significant. In other words, most earthquakes are due to slip on faults.

The Geologic Column

As stated earlier, no one locality on Earth provides a complete record of our planet’s history, because stratigraphic columns can contain unconformities. But by correlating rocks from locality to locality at millions of places around the world, geologists have pieced together a composite stratigraphic column, called the geologic column, that represents the entirety of Earth history.

Folds and Foliations

Geometry of Folds Imagine a carpet lying flat on the floor. Push on one end of the carpet, and it will wrinkle or contort into a series of wavelike curves. Stresses developed during mountain building can similarly warp or bend bedding and foliation (or other planar features) in rock. The result a curve in the shape of a rock layer is called a fold.

Our aim and YOUR support!

Our aim to run this website is to promote Geology. We strive to encourage students' research by promoting "scope" of Geology through sharing articles, blogs, photos, documentaries and videos. So how we are doing it? We publish blogs and articles at our website. We hosts Live Virtual Field Tours with the support of our contributors from all around the world to encourage everyone to learn geology. We also make and share our own geology educational videos. We made a group named as “Learning Geology community” that has now more than 22,000 members from all over the world and the group is expanding more and more. We always do our best to share every geologic news and discovery at our social media sites. We love to give announcement of new and upcoming geology related books at our page. We appreciate other geology websites and channels by sharing frequently their content at our website.
