The Land

Landscapes are the present tense of a continually advancing past.

The study of the earth, geology, covers a wide range of topics, including historic geology, paleontology (fossil remains of plants and animals), volcanology, mineralogy, economic geology, and more.

These aspects of geology have a bearing on how we experience life on this planet–where we build cities, where and what we farm, the materials available for construction and technology, even the very ecological niches where various plants and animals thrive. Humans take their recreation and artistic activities to places that challenge and inspire them.
