Welcome to the Rock Archive!
Here at the Rock Archive, we explore the current state of knowledge on the co-evolution of life and Earth’s changing environment using simple illustrations.
We touch upon key subjects such as:
The rock record
The rock record plays a critical part in understanding the geological history of Earth and other planets!
Life in the environment
What is the role of life in shaping Earth’s surface environments and vice versa? A question that we like to explore in natural and laboratory settings.
Tools we use
How do we extract meaningful information out of rocks? Discover how geologists work in the lab and field.
