Branches of science: Geology-Earth Science

Geology (from Greek: γη, gê, “earth”; and λόγος, logos, “speech” lit. to talk about the earth) is the science and study of the solid and liquid matter that constitute the Earth. The field of geology encompasses the study of the composition, structure, physical properties, dynamics, and history of Earth materials, and the processes by which they are formed, moved, and changed. The field is important in academics, industry (due to mineral and hydrocarbon extraction), and for social issues such as geotechnical engineering, the mitigation of natural hazards, and knowledge about past climate and climate change. The earth sciences are central to all aspects of life. (wikipedia)
