Geology 1 (The Science of Geology)


Geology 1 (The Science of Geology)

Introductory lecture to Physical Geology.


003 - Geology

In this video Paul Andersen explains how rock is formed and changed on the planet. The video begins with a brief description of rocks, minerals, and the rock cycle. Plate tectonics is used to describe structure near plate boundaries. Hot spots and natural hazards (like volcanos, earthquake, and tsunamis) are included.

Earth Science: Crash Course History of Science #20

It's Earth Science time!!!! In this field, natural philosophers were asking questions like, what’s up with fossils? Are they the remains of extinct organisms? Or are they so-called “sports of nature”—rocks that just happen to look like living things but don’t /mean/ anything? And most importantly, how old is… everything?

Geology 1 (Geoscience and the Origins of the Earth)

Geology in a Minute - What is Geology?

The most recent series from the GeoBus Project brings you the 'Geology in a Minute' series. Each fortnight the GeoBus team will bring you a different aspect of geology in just one minute. This weeks episode gets us started asking the question, 'what is geology?' Enjoy and don't forget to comment below with what geology means to you. This video was produced by Dr Benjamin Moorhouse for the GeoBus project. Comment below to tell us about any geology in a minute video ideas you have!

Geology 1

Geologic Mapping & Structural Geology - Episode 1 - Introduction

As voted by the ASBOGGERs Study Circle (on Facebook), we will be running through structural geology, paired with the basics of geologic mapping. I am using two separate books for each respective topic and will be combining a chapter from each into one episode. This series should be long, and successful at teaching you or refreshing your memory in principles of both structural geology and geologic mapping. This series will include the three point problem, developing cross-sections, what deformation/stress/strain is, and many other concepts.

In this first episode of a new playlist, we introduce Geologic Mapping, Structural Geology, why they are combined into a playlist, and how they relate. We are using two different books, respectively, to develop each episode. We introduce base maps, topographic maps, geologic maps, cross-sections, structure contours, structural geology, structural analysis, geometric analysis, tectonics, stress/strain, and brittle/ductile deformation.

Please follow me on Facebook @ GeoWes and Instragram @ GeoWesVids. Hit the like, subscribe, leave me a comment. Let me know what you think of the series.

Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers for changes in a landscape over time to support an explanation for changes in a landscape over time.

Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence from rock strata for how the geologic time scale is used to organize Earth's 4.6-billion-year-old history.

Plate tectonics is the unifying theory that explains the past and current movements of the rocks at Earth’s surface and provides a framework for understanding its geologic history.

Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth's surface at varying time and spatial scales.

Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions.
