  • Aquifer [r]: A body of rocks or sediments capable of supplying groundwater at a useful rate. [e]
  • Chronostratigraphy [r]: The branch of stratigraphy that studies the relative time relations and ages of rock bodies. [e]
  • Diamond [r]: A stable allotrope of carbon where the carbon atoms are arranged in an isometric-hexoctahedral crystal lattice, commonly used in industrial applications and jewelry. [e]
  • Earth science [r]: The study of the components and processes of the planet Earth. [e]
  • Fossilization (palaeontology) [r]: The set of geological processes that convert organic remains into fossils. [e]
  • Geochronology [r]: Science of determining the absolute age of rocks, fossils, and sediments, within a certain degree of uncertainty inherent within the method used. [e]
  • Geologic ages of earth history [r]: Measurement of the geologic history of the earth which can be broadly classified into two periods: the Precambrian supereon and the Phanerozoic eon. [e]
  • Groundwater [r]: Water which occurs below the solid surface of the earth. [e]
  • Large-scale trickle filters [r]: One of the processes by which biodegradable substances in wastewaters are biochemically oxidized. [e]
  • Microorganism [r]: A 'germ', an organism that is too small to be seen individually with the naked eye. [e]
  • Natural environment [r]: A term that encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally on Earth or some region of Earth. [e]
  • Sedimentary geology [r]: 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. [e]
  • Solar system [r]: The sun and the planets orbiting it. [e]
  • Stone [r]: Rock or a piece of rock shaped, cut, or finished for a particular purpose, especially used in construction, paving, monuments, and jewellery. [e]
  • Stratigraphy [r]: 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. [e]
  • Volcanically active worlds [r]: Planetary bodies where openings in the surface crust allow material to forcefully escape, often in visibily spectacular showers of ash, rock or gases. [e]
