Geology


Derived from Latin meaning "dug up", it's the remains of a plant or animal preserved in rock

---------------------------------------------------

A fracture in the earth along which the sides are displaced; the San Andreas is a dramatic example


---------------------------------------------------


It's the shallow body of water enclosed within an atoll

---------------------------------------------------
