Introduction And Scope Total views (1)  
Geology (In Greek, Geo = Earth, Logos = Science) is a branch of science dealing with the study of the Earth. It is also known as earth science. The study of the earth comprises of the whole earth, its origin, structure, composition and history (including the development of life) and the nature of the processes. The word was first used in 1778 in the work of Jean Andrea de Luc (a Swiss-born scienti......
