On this day in 2008, I was in Northern Ireland with @squirrel_adventure. We flew into Belfast and walked the Giants Causeway Coastal Path from Ballycastle to Portstewart, and on to Londonderry. . Along the way we saw the impressive Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle, Carrick-a-rederope bridge and Bushmills whisky distillery. . The Giant's Causeway is an area of approximately 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, creating during an ancient volcanic eruption. . #struthadventures #Giantscauseway #ireland #northernireland #europe #onthisday #walking #hiking #travelingtheworld #travel #travelblogger #volcanic #ancient #history #geologicalformation #geology #wanderlust #globetrotter #globetrottertravels #Bushmills #basalt #columns #countyantrim #nationaltrust #causewaycoastalroute #visitireland #loveireland #tourismireland #sharetravelpics #bbctravel

Je vous en mets une deuxi

Je vous en mets une deuxime des chemines de fe au dessus du lac de Serre-Ponon parce que c'est tellement spcial et original ! On les appelle les Demoiselles coiffes. Il parat que le gros rocher champignon qui repose sur les pitons pse 8 tonnes. J'adore ce genre de bizarreries gologiques. Petit test de Rorschach : vous voyez quoi ? ************************************************* Geological wonders of the southern French Alps! What do you see? ************************************************* Die Elfen und Feen haben sich da am See versammelt..

A model of Acanthostega,

A model of Acanthostega, a stem vertebrate, was one of the first animals to have recognisable limbs as it came out of the Late Devonian oceans 365 million years ago. Your distant ancestor was similar in appearance to this animal. #fossils #palaeontology #paleontology #rocks #teeth #darwin #museum #zoology #skeleton #bones #jurassicpark #iceage #megafauna #evolution #naturalselection #extinct #dinosaur #extinction #picoftheday #museums #collections #tooth #melbourne #australia #skeleton #geology #melbournemuseum #biology #animals

I know this. What is it?

I know this. What is it? What is this? The Devils Tower in NE Wyoming. This featured heavily in the film Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, and it's an absolute gem of geologic wonder. Formed in a similar way to the Giant's Causeway in NI, its made of granite columns formed around 50,000,000 years ago as a magma plug. The surrounding earth was then eroded away, leaving this majesty. #devilstower #wyoming #usa #unitedstates #geology #geography #volcano #volcanic #magma #chamber #rocks #granite #closeencountersofthethirdkind ##travel #roadtrip #holiday #family

An extract on #geology

Geology one of the Earth sciences is the study of the Earth, with the general exclusion of present-day life, flow within the ocean, and the atmosphere. The field of geology encompasses the composition, structure, physical properties, and history of Earth's components, and the processes by which they are shaped. Geologists typically study rock, sediment, soil, rivers, and natural resources.

Subdisciplines of geology: Economic geology Mining geology Petroleum geology Engineering geology Environmental geology Geochemistry Geological modelling Geomorphology Geophysics Historical geology Hydrogeology Mineralogy Paleontology Petrology Sedimentology Stratigraphy Structural geology Volcanology

Geologic province Geologic provinces based on origin: Shield Platform (shield covered with sediment) Orogen Island arc Continental arc Forearc Basin Cratonic basin Foredeep Basin Large igneous province Extended crust Rift

The Dictionary of Occupational Titles lists the following occupations in Geology, which it describes as "concerned with the investigation of the composition, structure, and physical and biological history of the earth's crust and the application of this knowledge in such fields as archeology, mining, construction, and environmental impact": Crystallographer Geodesist Geologist Geologist, Petroleum (Petrol. & Gas) Geophysical Prospector (Petrol. & Gas) Geophysicist Hydrologist Mineralogist Paleontologist Petrologist Seismologist Stratigrapher Engineer, Soils Geophysical-Laboratory Chief (Alternate Titles: Director, Geophysical) Geological Aide (Petrol. & Gas) Prospector Paleontological Helper Laboratory Assistant (Petrol. & Gas) (Alternate Titles: Analyst, Geochemical Prospecting; Core Analyst; Laboratory Tester)
