Program Description:

Geology is the study of the Earth. Mainly focussing on the Earth's crust, the geologist investigates its structure and composition, the phenomena that occur in its interior and the processes that are responsible for these phenomena. The Earth's crust has been subjected to a continuous change since the earliest geological times and, as a consequence, its present day constitution can only be understood when seen in relation to its past evolution.This historical approach of the Earth is a fundamental aspect of geology.
