"Geology" is earth, the materials of which it is made, the structure of those materials, and the processes acting upon them.

Some motivations are study of the Earth – how it works and its 4.5 billion-year history, Geologists study some of society's most important problems, such as energy, water, and mineral resources; Geoscientists follow paths of exploration and discovery in quest of solutions to some of society's most challenging problems.

Leonardo da Vinci, Charles Lyell, Charles Darwin, Colin Campbell, Benjamin Franklin Mudge are a few specialists of "Geology".

Several topics in "Geology" include How Can You Become a Geologist? Where Geology is applied the most? How geologic time scale helps in Geo-sciences?.
