Geology is a branch of applied science, that dealing with the study of the evolution and origin of the structure of our planet. Geologists study the physical properties of the Earth to know its history, predict man-made/natural disasters, find out about previous and current climate patterns, and search renewable and non-renewable resources. Geological results are applied to the fields of resource mapping, remote sensing, computer simulations, and reprocessing technology.
