The geosciences include the study of the composition, properties, structure, dynamics, and history of the earth and its materials. Some topics include earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, fossils, radiometric dating, and mineral resources. Students and researchers with an interest in crystallography, geobiology, geochemistry, geophysics, geophysics, hydrology, oceanography, paleontology, and other areas of the earth sciences will find resources here that may be useful to them.
