Course summary

GEOLOGY: - Geology is the study of the Earth, its structure, composition, and history, and its hazards and resources. Geology uses rocks, minerals and fossils to provide an integrated understanding of whole Earth processes in 4D, linking the deep Earth, its crust, the surface and associated environments. This knowledge is applied to contemporary geological and socio-environmental problems, including natural and anthropogenic change and the sustainable development of resources. You will take part in an exciting fieldwork programme which includes both overseas locations and UK based field sites with many one day visits to local sites.
