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