The term Earth science covers wide spectra of scientific disciplines focused on a study of our planet.  Among others geology is probably the most prominent. It studies evolution of the planet and of the live on it. It is further divided into different branches according to subject of its study. The solid rocks and its mineral components are studied by petrology and mineralogy respectively. Evolution of live and description of its ancient forms is a subject of paleontology. Economic geology localizes deposits of ores as well as of oil&gas. Findings of mineralogy and economic geology are applied in extractive metallurgy, which is a scientific discipline focused on ore processing.
