The study of geology is an expression of our curiosity of the world around us
If you have ever questioned why landscapes differ, why earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur, why the mountains and oceans exist, or why the dinosaurs became extinct, then you have already been introduced to geology. Geologists attempt to answer the questions of "why?" "how?" and "under what conditions?", as well as questions concerning time ("when?") and place ("where?"). The process of finding the answers to these questions is complex and fascinating; it is what geology is all about! Discover Geology at UVM.
