    Nature – Geology

    1. Asteroid Impact Events: An early 90s mainstay, this article would detail the history, likelihood, and potential results of large celestial bodies colliding with Earth. It would include significant past events like the meteor impact that led to the extinction of dinosaurs.
    2. Plate Tectonics: This foundational geological article would describe how Earth’s crust is divided into large pieces that move over time, causing seismic activity like earthquakes and creating major geographical features like mountains and oceanic trenches.
    3. Volcanology: This article would explore the intricacies of volcanoes, including their formation, types, and the environments created by their eruptions. It would discuss famous volcanoes like Mount St. Helens and Vesuvius, and the geologic role volcanoes play in our world.
    4. Seismology and Earthquakes: Detailing the study of seismic waves and earthquakes, this article would focus on how the movement of the Earth’s crust creates seismic activity, how this activity is measured, and the social and economic impacts of earthquakes.
    5. Mineralogy: This article would cover the physical and chemical properties of minerals, as well as their classification and distribution. It would discuss their importance in various industries such as construction, jewelry, and technology.
    6. Paleontology: Likely one of the most loved among children, this article would cover the study of fossils and ancient lifeforms that have left a mark on Earth’s geologic record, from the smallest microfossils to the behemoths of the dinosaur era.
    7. Stratigraphy: This would discuss layers of sedimentary rocks and the significance of rock strata. It would cover principles like ‘law of superposition’ which helps in understanding Earth’s geological timeline and interpreting fossil records.
    8. Hydrogeology: This covers the study of the distribution and movement of groundwater. The article could discuss aquifers, water wells, and the role of groundwater in erosion and deposition.
    9. Glaciology: Focusing on the study of ice and its effects on landforms and processes, this article would explain how features such as glaciers, ice caps, and icebergs were formed and how they shape the Earth.
    10. Geologic Time: Extensive article detailing the vast spans of time over which geologic processes occur, marked by the standardized use of epochs, periods, eras, and eons.
