Geology is the study of the earth’s physical structure. The land we’re on—its shape, soils, minerals, water tables—has profound effects on our lives and our history. 

Visit our museum to learn about the bedrock, landscape, soils, groundwater, mining and energy resources in the county.

Chris Palmer's detailed Outline of Chatham Geology is available here on our website.
