Concept Info

NAME

Geology

DESCRIPTION

Geology is broadly the study of the Earth and other planets, moons, and smaller planetary bodies. Fields of geology range from the initial formation and differentiation of the Earth to modern surface processes, such as erosion and soil formation, and include Earth system history and the evolution of life.

JSON-LD is the canonical representation for SciGraph data.
