Geology is the science that deals with the physical structure and substance of the earth, their history, and the processes, which act on them. This involves theories that explain the theory of tectonic plates and the formations and structures that occur as a result of the movement beneath the earths crust. Geological processes continually modify the Earths surface, destroy old rocks, create new rocks and add to the complexity of ground conditions. The hot interior of the Earth is the ultimate energy source, which drives all geological processes. Most rocks were formed 200-300M years ago, when the area was near the equator in a deltaic swamp, disturbed by earth movements then left in a shallow sea.
