Geology is a branch of science dealing with the study of the Earth (from Greek, Geo = Earth, Logos = Science). So Geology is the science of the earth. The word was first used in 1778 in the work of Jean Andrea de Luc (a Swiss-born scientist). 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. Much of the knowledge discovered about the earth comes from the study of minerals, rocks, and fossils found in the layers of the earth’s crust. Geology gives insight into the history of the Earth, as it provides the primary evidence for plate tectonics, the evolutionary history of life, and past climates. In modern times, geology is commercially important for mineral and hydrocarbon exploration and exploitation and for evaluating water resources. It is publicly important for the prediction and understanding of natural hazards, the remediations of environmental problems and for providing insights into past climate change. Geology plays a role in geotechnical engineering and is a major academic discipline.
