22+ Geology Quotes

Geology is an earth science concerned with the solid Earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the processes by which they change over time. An important part of geology is the study of how Earth's materials, structures, processes and organisms have changed over time. The study of the physical material of the Earth dates back at least to ancient Greece when Theophrastus (372–287 BCE) wrote the work Peri Lithon (On Stones). Much of 19th-century geology revolved around the question of the Earth's exact age. This is a collection of 24 Geology Quotes and sayings.
