Earth materials in our lives.

Geoscience studies the processes that form and shape the Earth's surface, the natural resources we use, and how water and ecosystems are interconnected.

In celebration of this year’s Earth Science Week, and in acknowledgement of the breadth of research, we’ve collated free leading articles in the geoscience portfolio. The articles below cover a variety of topics and have been grouped into the following themes, minerology and petrology, energy and hydrogeology.

All featured research will be available via this page until 28 February 2021 for you to read, share and cite.

Explore the collection and join in the conversation at @tandfenviro with #EarthSciWeek.

Minerology & Petrology

Sound scientific papers focused on the the study of rocks and the processes that form and transform them.
