Geology and Natural Resources

desert


Look around you. Where did all of the stuff you use every day come from?  Are you sitting on a plastic chair?  Do you have rock countertops in your kitchen and bathrooms?  Do you use pencils or powder?  Almost everything we use every day comes from our natural resources and many of those natural resources come from under the surface of the earth.  Rocks, minerals, water, oil and gas are all geological resources that we depend on every day.
