Discover why landscapes differ, why earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur, why mountains and oceans exist, or why dinosaurs became extinct? Geologists attempt to answer the questions of why? how? and under what conditions? as well as questions concerning time (when?) and place (where?). Between fieldwork and time in the lab, geology is the process of answering these questions. Discover Geology at UVM.
