buy Lyrica 300 mg online Why learn about local and regional geology: Emerging world school is all about raising awareness. On a very practical level, this means, among many other things, knowing the local geology. In so doing, one can have a better understanding of the (local) nature, landforms, water and other resources, soil, potential for building structures, and more.

“Earth science is an inherently local subject. No two places share exactly the same sequence of events that led to the way they are today. In this sense, Earth science is a subject to be explored in one’s own neighborhood, examining the detailed sequence of rocks for the history that has gone on under our feet. What is not possible from only one location is making sense of why this particular sequence of events took place when and where it did, particularly relative to sequences in other places around it. The distribution of rocks and landforms can be explained by processes that shape areas covering thousands of kilometers, such as the volcanism, mountain building, and sedimentary basins that accompany converging plates. These processes link widely separated sequences in a common history.”
