Geology of Georgia. The territory of Georgia occupies the central part of the Black Sea - Caspian Sea basin. The latter represents a Late Alpine collision structure that was formed in the place of the ancient ocean Tethys and its northern and southern continental framings as a result of the collision between Afro-Arabian and Eurasian continents. The islands directly south of the large Savannah River, including Tybee, Wassaw and the north end of Ossabaw, and those south of the Altamaha River, like Little St. Simons and Sea Island, are more separated from their Pleistocene counterparts. Sea level continues to rise in this area at an increased rate of 12 to 14 inches per century. B B.S. with a major in geological sciences Within the College of Arts and Science and the School of Earth, Ocean and Environment, geological sciences students can choose to pursue an intensive major in geological sciences by taking an additional 13 hours. You will also take additional courses depending on the concentration you choose to pursue.

Series: Overseas Memoir. The Guiana Shield occupies a broad area in the NE of South America between the Atlantic Ocean, the Amazon, and the Orinoco rivers. Its ocean frontage, between these two rivers, is over km long, and its surface is 1, km 2.
The shield straddles the equator and has a climate of equatorial type, with two dry and two rainy seasons. In this area and farther south near Dadanawa the gneisses contain bands of a dark-gray to black garnetiferous pseudotachylite.
The gneisses merge into finer-grained sericite, chlorite, talc, hornblende, staurolite, and kyanite schists and phyllites and into the foliated Volcanic series, and no clear delimitation of these has yet been practicable.
