- Age (geology) : The fundamental chronostratigraphic unit.
- Biostratigraphy : A domain of stratigraphy that involves the identification of fossils and their position relative to their occurrences in space and time.
- Cambrian (geology) : First geologic period of Palaeozoic time stretching approximately from 550 to 480 million years BP.
- Chronostratigraphy : The branch of stratigraphy that studies the relative time relations and ages of rock bodies.
- Earth science : The study of the components and processes of the planet Earth.
- Geochronology : Science of determining the absolute age of rocks, fossils, and sediments, within a certain degree of uncertainty inherent within the method used.
- Geochronometry : A branch of stratigraphy and of geochronology aimed at the quantitative measurement of geologic time.
- Geomorphology : The study of the landforms and geological history of an area, the processes that have shaped the landscape, and the time period over which these processes occur.
- Hydrology : The interdisciplinary study of the movement, characteristics and distribution of water, surface-water (fresh water and salt water), groundwater, and water-quality.
- Lithostratigraphy : Stratigraphy based on the interpretation of physical and petrographic properties of rocks.
- Magnetostratigraphy : Studies of the magnetic characteristics of rocks.
- Palynology : The science of the study of contemporary and fossil palynomorphs as well as associated particulate organic matter (POM) in sedimentary strata.
- Sedimentary geology : Science concerned with the physical and chemical properties of sedimentary rocks and the processes involved in their formation, including transportation, deposition, and lithification of sediments.
- Stage (geology) : A unit in the study of soil layers.
- Stratigraphy : The interdisciplinary science field that describes all rock bodies that form the Earth's crust and the manner in which they are organised into distinctive units that are then mapped.
- Uranium : A silvery-white metallic chemical element in the actinide series of the periodic table that has the symbol U and atomic number 92.
