CONCEPT OF GEOLOGY
Etymologically, the word geology comes from the Greek "ges" earth and logos ", treaty, ie, treaty

Geological action of the atmosphere
Is called weathering to the action that the atmosphere above the material by components and
temperature variations. These actions are manifested by physical-chemical changes in rocks

Deformation of rocks
As a result of the movements and internal energy are deformed rocks.
At the beginning of the deformation of rocks need much effort on them to deform if the yield is
not exceeded the rock returns to its effort to not apply. Once this l

DEFINITION OF GEOLOGY
Etymologically, the word means geology treaty land (Greek geos: land and logos: treaties).

the earth, from the data obtained from the stu
It is the science that studies the successive changes that have occurred in the organic and
inorganic kingdoms in nature. Geological processes and their effects.
The land is part of the solar system and therefore should have a similar st
Geological processes and effects on slopes and hillsides.
Delimitation of concepts, classifications and general aspects of the processes and effects on

Geology is the field of science that is concerned with the origin of the Earth, its history, its
shape, matter that configures and processes that act or have acted on it. It is one of many
subjects related as geoscience, or geosciences, and
A solid (regularly packed ions) becomes liquid (disordered ions moving freely)
Increasing T causes the ions vibrate more and more rapidly and extensively in its crystalline
structure until the chemical bonds break
It is the science that studies the Earth, its composition, structure, and phenomena of all kinds
that take place in it, and its past through the elements of it have been on the rocks. It is not a
purely descriptive science, but each case seeks the
