Geology is the study of the earths structure, the materials of which it is composed of and the processes acting upon it. Geology looks into the history of the earth by providing information on past climates, plate tectonics and the evolution of life.
A Geopark is an area of international significant geological heritage. A park dedicated to the study of how we as a civilization have used and affected the land in the past and how we should use it moving forward. The elements that are found in a Geopark assist in the study of our past, help us understand our present and guide us in our future.
