The Great Lisbon Earthquake of 1755 devastated not only Lisbon but much of southwestern Europe and adjoining North Africa with effects felt as far away as Finland and the coasts of the Antilles Islands in the Caribbean Sea. To compound the situation in Lisbon the city was successively struck by fire and a devastating tsunami that came roaring up the Tagus River. The quake also gave rise to the science of seismology.

There are different types of volcanoes. They are classified by volcanologists into various groups according on the shape of the volcano, the way these volcanoes erupt and the materials they are made of. The groups of volcanoes can be any of the following; stratovolcanoes also known as composite volcanoes, cinder cones, shield volcanoes and complex or compound volcanoes.

Meteor crater lakes are water formations created by impact of meteors. The crater was then filled with water and became crater lake. Meteor crater lakes are also called impact crater lakes due to the fact that they were formed due to the impact of meteors to the earth. There are several impact craters or meteor craters in the world but not all became meteor crater lakes. Here are some of the most remarkable meteor crater lakes in the world.

Coal is a well known combustible mineral, used as a fuel. It varies in shade from brown to black. It is brittle, it cannot be melted, and is not subject to decay. Coal is composed essentially of carbon, but contains five or six per cent of earthy matter. This is the part that is left behind in ash. Sulphur is found in almost all coal.

The Richter Scale is famous for measuring the magnitude of an earthquake. In other words, it measures the severity of an earthquake from 0-10 with each unit of the Richter Scale being measured by a factor of 10. The more severe an earthquake is, the higher the measurement will be. It may be possible for the Richter Scale to measure an earthquake higher than 10 if one at this sort of magnitude does strike.

As we know, oil obtained underground cannot directly be used for fuel or other purposes. After the geologists, mining engineers and miners have carried out their tasks in oil exploration the production of oil has to be considered. The production department has an enormous responsibility in providing oil for commercial use. LetÂ’s consider a small reservoir of oil which can be easily reached by transport and which has oil that is not difficult to obtain. Oil from this reservoir can be produced...

As you know, oil is the most important source of income for financing. So it is necessary for us to have more knowledge about the oil industry. Getting oil from the earth isnÂ’t simple and easy task. It is a very complicated as well as costly business. The earth does not give up its mineral riches easily. Searching for an oil deposit and getting oil from it are the tasks of geologists, mining engineers and miners. Geologists are scientists who study the earthÂ’s crust. With their special k...

One of the most popular of all tales concerning the loss of the mysterious continent is Atlantis. Since ancient times, men have wondered stories of the advanced and cultured civilization which one unfortunate day, was destroyed and submerged into the water of the Atlantic Ocean but recent research shows that the legend of Atlantis may well have a basis in fact.

Living near the volcanoes is high risk. No one would camp in the crater of Halemaumau in Hawaii, or in the crater of Mount Etna in Sicily. However volcanoes have always attracted mankind. Men have always come to farm the rich lands, and to enjoy the beauty of volcanoes. The dangers cannot be separated from the benefits. What will happen if a volcano erupts? What are the dangers? These are some of them. Glowing clouds form. These clouds consist of dust, ash, rock fragments, steam, sulfur and othe...
