This is a process analogous to that which, in geologic time, produces new strata through the wearing away of old rocks.

The part played by water in geologic processes, such as that of mineral segregation, is more or less incidentally discussed in other chapters.

The process of creation is here laid bare through the geologic periods.

In physics, chemistry, geology, astronomy, and kindred sciences this process is now complete.

In news:

Identifying such wind-blown processes in the geologic record is extremely difficult, because turbid waters and scuttling sea creatures mix the sediment up beyond the point of recognition.
Knowledge of geological joints is essential in assuring the economic extraction of crushed stone from quarries, and detailed studies of joints and other planes of weakness should be included in the exploration and quarrying process.
The craters that do form are often hard to recognize or disappear entirely as they are eroded by geological processes, such as wind and possibly icy volcanism.
An overview of Ice Age Trail geology and key geological concepts will help you understand geological processes, materials and landforms.

The modeling of dynamic flow and transport processes in geologic porous media plays a significant role in the management of natural resources such as in oil reservoirs and water aquifers.

These porous media are often created by complex geological processes and may contain materials with widely varying abilities to transmit fluids.

One sub-type uses astronomical measurements of spectral lines at large redshift, while the other uses fossils of nuclear processes on Earth to infer values of constants early in geological history.
