Mineralogy: Conserving Our Precious Minerals
The Wonders of Earth Science series covers subjects from the Earth‚Ä∞€™s Interior, Mineralogy, Meteorology, Energy, Glaciers to Understanding Earthquakes and the Ozone Blanket. Students will develop a basic understanding of the fundamentals of Earth Science and work their way up to more complex subjects. While the Earth‚Ä∞€™s surface may seem stationary and rock-steady it is always in motion. Scientists have studied earthquakes, volcanoes and other seismic activity and have evolved theories that explain the movement and deformation of the Earth‚Ä∞€™s crust over millions of years. Includes suggestions for careers in this field of study.
