Investigate landforms and the internal processes of Earth


About Us

Geology is the science of investigating changes of the earth over time, such as climate change and land formation.  A geologist studies earth processes including earthquakes, landslides, floods, and volcanic eruptions.  They gather information to understand the earth’s materials, processes and history.  By studying the distribution of resources, a geologist can provide recommendations for the sustainable use of earth’s materials.

"Students learn when they feel empowered. Toward that end, I use local and observable examples to help students learn about the world around them. Field studies are important in this sense because they empower us to learn about and understand things that are tangible and part of our experience."
