327/366 Geology

I studied Geology at a very low level, for a very short period of time. We did a couple of field trips, one was to Barton-on-Sea, the area is known for the ease with which fossils can be found. Belemnites, small toothlike fossils molluscs. It was a lot of fun looking for them.

We learned about Mohs scale of hardness. Looking at crystals, learning about the different types of rock; igneous, sedimentary and (I just had to look up) metamorphic. I have three geology related books; one of them is specifically about geology, but it is american, and I almost discarded it for that reason, but of course, rocks don’t care about nationality, and it was just the way the book talked about geology in the USA. I’m going to have another look at it to see if I can adapt the projects to fit in to this area.

The second book may help with that. It’s a book about the history of Gosport, but for some reason the author decided to include a section on the geology of the area, so I shall see if I can use the books in conjunction with each other.

The third book is also apt for this area, it’s about pebbles. Now ordinarily, I avoid beaches like the plague. They are boring, smelly and full of sand, and the other, when the beach is full of pebbles, it’s awkward to walk on. Ironically, both of those factors may now act to draw me to beaches. I offer up this link, who new sand could look like this under a microscope? https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=sand+under+the+microscope&client=safari&hl=en-gb&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiFj7e20szxAhW7TxUIHZjLBpIQ_AUoAXoECAEQAw&biw=1261&bih=1663&dpr=2

Then there are the pebbles. So many different types, so interesting when you look at them, and then of course, there is the geological aspect. It’s all just so interesting.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
