A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Geologist Collection - The nature and origin of minerals and rocks interested many ancient writers, and mineralogy may have been the first systematic study to arise in what are called the earth sciences. The 1556 publication of De Re Metallica by Albertus Magnus is considered as the beginning foundation of mineralogy, mining, and metallurgy. Geological study emerged in the 18th century as a separate field. John Wesley Powell, Lewis and Clark, and others led expeditions of the American West, with Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Grand Canyon becoming famous as geological sites leading to the formation of the U.S. Geological Survey. Today's geologists are involved in a multitude of branches and subsets of geology. Some even work with the geology of distant places like the planet Mars. Determining the age of the earth has always been a goal of geologists, and that goal received a boost with the discovery of radioactivity and the realization that the ages of minerals and rocks could be determined by radiometric dating. Refining the geological time scale continues with ever more precise measurements. The study of geologic hazards such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are part of environmental geology in that these are critical factors in determining where to store nuclear waste products. A far reaching science. Geology.
