About the Course
Geology is an Earth science concerned with the solid earth, the rock, its other solid structures, its minerals, its physical and chemical properties, its water resources and which it is composed and the processes by which they change over time. Geology can refer to the study of the solid features of any planet or natural satellite(Such as Mars or the Moon).
Geology describes the structure of the earth beneath its surface, and the processes that have shaped structure. An important of geology is the study of how earth’s materials, structures processes and organisms have changed overtime.
Geology is the science of solid Earth and the rocks of which it is composed. Far from being the science of stuffy old men in classrooms, Geology can be one of the most exciting subjects to study at our college. Students of Geology will have plenty of opportunities to travel around the different parts of India for field work.
Why GIS as an Add-On?
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) store, analyze and visualize data for geographic positions on Earth’s surface. GIS is a computer-based tool that examines spatial relationships, patterns and trends. By connecting geography with data, GIS better understands data using a geographic context.
The 4 main ideas of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are:
Create geographic data.
Manage it in a database.
Analyze and find patterns.
Visualize it on a map.
Because viewing and analyzing data on maps impacts our understanding of data, we can make better decisions using GIS. It helps us understand what is where. Analysis becomes simple. Answers become clear.
Remote sensors collect data by detecting the energy that is reflected from Earth. These sensors can be on satellites or mounted on aircraft.
Remote sensors can be either passive or active. Passive sensors respond to external stimuli. They record natural energy that is reflected or emitted from the Earth’s surface. The most common source of radiation detected by passive sensors is reflected sunlight.
In contrast, active sensors use internal stimuli to collect data about Earth. For example, a laser-beam remote sensing system projects a laser onto the surface of Earth and measures the time that it takes for the laser to reflect back to its sensor.
Remote sensing has a wide range of applications in many different fields
1. Provide basic knowledge of different branches of Geology at graduate level.
2. Understand the Earth and its various processes, both external and internal that shape it.
3. Assess the Earth as source of natural resources such as water, minerals, rocks, ores, coal and oil and devise ways and means to extract these for benefit of mankind.
4. Realize the threat of natural disasters and and work out ways to mitigate its effects.
5. Recognize the Earth as an environmental realm and chalk out plans for conserving its resources.
A pass in Plus Two / Equivalent examination with any two of the following subjects .
(a) He/She secured not less than grade C for attendance in each course of study in the semester, and
(b) His/Her progress is satisfactory in the internal assessment in each of the course.
The research degrees provide a higher level of training often in a geology specially areas such as paleontology mineralogy hydrology or volcano logy. Employment opportunities for geologists very good.
