Geology

The field of geology focuses on the dynamic structure of the Earth and the rocks and minerals that compose it. Use Wolfram|Alpha to learn about the different geological layers from the inner core to the crust. Find out about geologic events and features, such as earthquakes, volcanoes and impact craters. Get properties of thousands of minerals. Investigate geochronology.
