Geophysics is a massive branch of science that uses physics to study how the forces that form and shape the Earth work. Geophysics includes the studies of oceanography, geomagnetism, seismology, volcanology, geothermometry, meteorology, gravity, and the atmospheric sciences. Geophysics also includes the study of ground...
Geophysics: An introduction
By: Effie Moore Salem
In order to understand geophysics, you must first know that physics is the science of matter and its interactions. Therefore, since the prefix geo pertains to the earth, then geophysics is a branch of geology; geology the study of the whole earth. And what a...
Geothermics: An introduction
By: Effie Moore Salem
Geothermics is the study of heat inside the earth. Primarily, it is the science of the deep heat that is associated with hot springs, geysers, and superheated mud and fumaroles. Fumaroles are earth's vents, often called smoke holes. The usefulness of this science is in...
Geology science projects for elementary school students

Children love to play in the dirt in geology science projects gives them this chance. Essentially, geology science allows children of all ages, to do just that, play in the dirt. It gives them an excuse to get their hands dirty and to play and...

Have you ever marveled at the power and predictability of Yellowstone's Old Faithful Geyser? Enjoyed a dip in a hot spring? Turned on any electric appliance in Reykjavik, Iceland? If so, you have already been introduced to geothermics."Geothermics" is the energy that is being...

In geology, geothermics is the study of latent heat that is concentrated deep inside the earth. Underneath your feet, at a depth of approximately fifty to sixty miles below, lies a viscous goo of hot molten rock. The deeper inside the earth you go, the...

Geophysics; which is also known as Geophysical Science, is a subject with a broad spectrum of applications. Found at the intersection of many of the major sciences including physics, mathematics, planetary science, geology, oceanography and glaciology it can be defined simply as the application of...

Our ancestor's probably guessed that the center of the Earth was hot by witnessing volcanic eruptions, steam vents, geysers, and hot springs. It was not until people began excavating mines deep into the earth that they were able to take temperature measurements and determine that...

Geology is all around us. Depending on where we live, we have examples of mountains eroded away by wind and rain, the coastline under constant attack of waves, mountain streams that carry sediment from the tops of mountains to the lakes and rivers below.Elementary...

What does the word geology mean to a child? Not much probably. But if you start talking about dinosaurs, crystals, volcanoes, and rocks, their interest in the subject will generally become piqued, whether they know these things are part of the world of geology or...
