Introduction The classification of science is not limited to the umbrella branches of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Instead, even under these branches, we have hundreds of subbranches based on various factors like areas of application, concepts concerned, concepts studied, etc. Classification is important since it makes advanced studies easier. For example, up till high school, you study the umbrella branches of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. But the concepts taught at this level are simple and limited. When you go to the graduate or postgraduate level, your syllabus is advanced, and therefore, you cannot study two branches at once. Instead, ... Read More

Introduction Magma and lava are two different parts of molten rocks, one that is stored on the earth’s crust and the other one emitted through the vent of a volcano. Despite both these natural components being molten rocks and both emitting from the deep down of earth’s crust, there are a few sheer differences between them in real-time. What are Magma and Lava? Magma Magma can be defined as an extremely hot semi-liquid natural component that is stored under the earth’s crust. The layered structure of the earth consists of four different layers, the inner core, the outer core, mantle ... Read More

Introduction The process of soil erosion occurs either slowly or at an alarming rate. It is the process and by it, the upper layer of soil eras through water or air. Soil erosion has many causes and it affects many ways to the environment. The causes include the heavy rainfall and the logging process. The effects of it are Clogging of Waterways and Destruction of Infrastructure. Definition of Soil Erosion Soil erosion is a process through which the top fertile layer of the soil is lost. Soil erosion makes the soil less fertile and the production of crops becomes ... Read More

Sedimentary Rocks

Introduction The sedimentary rocks are formed naturally by the deposition of the pieces of rocks or materials that already exist on earth get accumulated. If these sediments are buried deep within the earth, due to cementation and compaction they accumulate to form the sedimentary rocks. There are several other processes by which these sedimentary rocks are formed. These are deposition of other rock materials that are carried by the wind from sedimentary rocks, precipitation of several solutions, deposition of biogenic activities, and dissolution and erosion of materials. There are several types of sedimentary rocks like organic sedimentary rocks, chemical ... Read More

Save Environment Reuse

Introduction At present days, the rapid growth of industries and the process of urbanisation have been identified as the core reason for the increment of significant issues in the environment. The overconsumption of natural resources has started being recognised as the cause of increment of pollutant elements in the atmosphere of the earth that contributes to degeneration of the human life and its quality of life as well. Focusing on this matter, the present tutorial will explain the process of reuse, and the benefits that this process beholds. Common reasons for environmental pollution The massive drivers of environment pollution ... Read More

Rock Cycle

Tutorialspoint
Updated on 13-Oct-2022 11:19:47
Introduction Rocks that are available in nature are subjected to changes in shape and size. The process of the rock cycle is a standard concept in the study of geology that governs the aspect of the transition in the states of rock. The rocks found in nature are constantly being recycled over a certain period. These rocks undergo various stages of chemical and physical changes that alter their structure. The three key forms of rocks that are found in nature are sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rocks. Rock cycle The rock cycle is the process that defines the transition of the ... Read More

Thunderstorms Cyclone Causes

Introduction The development of a thunderstorm is generally, observed in humid, hot and tropical areas. The humidity present in the air causes the increment of the wind’s temperature in the respective area that contributes to producing "strong upward rising wind". These winds carry the "droplets of water" upwards where the droplets got freeze. These things contribute to creating a certain kind of weather condition which will be discussed in this tutorial. What is a thunderstorm? The "gushes of wind" accompanied by lightning and thunder are commonly known as "thunderstorms". The main reason for the occurrence of a thunderstorm is ... Read More

Introduction The exponential increment of the human population is increasing the demand for natural resources to use in regular life. Natural resources are the key factors that are used for the development of the human lifestyle. Natural resources are inherently occurring materials that are beneficial to humans or could be helpful under possible technological, financial or social circumstances or collections drawn from the world, reserves such as edibles, construction and metals, water and others. In this tutorial, different classes of natural resources, their significance, utility, and standards are available. Information Regarding People's Natural Resources One of the important clauses regarding ... Read More
