Geology: A Very Short Introduction provides a concise introduction to the fascinating field of geology. Describing how the science began, it looks at the key discoveries that have transformed it, before delving into the modern science and its various subfields, such as sedimentology, tectonics, and stratigraphy. Analysing the geological foundations of the Earth, this VSI explains the interlocking studies of tectonics, geophysics, igneous and metamorphic petrology, and geochemistry and describes the geology of both the deep interior and surface of the Earth. Considering the role and importance of geology in the finding and exploitation of resources, it also discusses its place in environmental issues and in tackling problems associated with climate change.
