Overview of the department

Geology is the study of the earth and its natural resources. The field of geology involves the study of earth materials and processes. Geologists study all the concepts of earthquakes, landslides, floods, droughts, volcanic activity, ocean water currents (el Niño), types of soil, fuel oils, minerals (gold, silver, uranium), and so on. Many business enterprises rely on the information generated by geology and geologists for their activity. Gold, diamonds, silver, oil, iron, aluminum, and coal are all natural resources obtained from the Earth. These materials serve as the basis for many business enterprises. Thus, the study of geology plays an important role in modern life and civilization.

The Department of Geology was established in July 2013 as the government of Mizoram realized the importance of the subject in the fields of oil and natural gas exploration, construction of dams and reservoir, disaster management and exploration of mineral resources and ground water of the country.
