Putting it Together

SUMMARY

In this section, you learned the following:

  1. The extensive definition of geology
  2. The various fields within geology and what they study
  3. How scientists use the scientific method to answer questions

SYNTHESIS

While we have not thoroughly answered our questions from the beginning of the outcome, we should be able to understand the connection these questions have to geology. We now know that geology is more than rocks—it deals with the resources we use in our everyday life, and it explains why some areas are more tectonically active than others. As we move through the course, keep these questions in mind.

So let’s get started on this course and see why geology rocks.
