|Welcome To The Amazing World!!!Amazing world of geology
Geology is an interesting subject, where you learn about so many wonders of the nature. My site will introduce you to geology, which is a gate towards the wonders of this beautiful world.
What is Geology?
This name is new to some people and few of them confuse it with zoology!!!
This site gives information that will be interesting to common people and will also be helpful to the students of Geology.
GEOLOGY is basically the study of surface and subsurface rocks....OOOOH, that sounds so boring.... yeah?
No its not really so. This is the field where you study about the exciting world of colourful minerals, precious ore deposits like gold, copper etc., amazing huge structures in the rocks and mountain ranges like faults, folds.
This is the study of past environment, which existed in the world thousands, and millions of years ago which gives idea of life that once ruled the earth.
Here you learn about amazing dinosaurous age. Geological studies are also very crucial in finding ground water and in exploring the oil and gas reserves. Causes of earthquake, volcanic eruptions and subjects related to them all come under geology.
In broader term Geology is the study of present earth in order to learn how the earth has evolved to the present condition through its history.
* Please visit page "Petroleum Search", a new addition to this site. Do not miss it, some amazing information is waiting for you...
I hope these pages will be interesting to every one along with the Geology students..
** Please also visit page "Agents of Erosion", and "Amazing Desert Features". You will see some amazing pictures and some good information about the desert."
A good guide to Geology students..
***Do not hesitate to ask question about the topics mentioned above or any question which keeps pinching your mind related to Geology.
**** In near future new pages are planned on the following topics
1. Plate Tectonics
2. Dinosaurs (triassic and jurassic period)
3. Geological time scale
4. Geological structures
Keep visiting to see the updates.

Question : What are Pelagic Sediments?
Answer: Pelagic sediments are fine-grained deep ocean sediments mainly composed of biogenic ooze (mostly foraminifera ooze and radiolarian ooze) and clay minerals. In the deep sea water fine grained detritus material from surface water slowly settles at the bottom to form a sedimentary deposit. This contains skeletal remains of calcareous or siliceous microorganisms and clay minerals.
