Geology is the science and study of the solid and liquid matter that constitutes most M-class and other solid planets, such as Earth and Vulcan. The field of geology encompasses the study of the composition, structure, physical properties, dynamics, and history of planetary materials, and the processes by which they are formed, moved, and changed. The field is a major academic discipline, and is also important for mineral and hydrocarbon extraction, knowledge about and mitigation of natural hazards, some engineering fields, and understanding past climates and environments.

Geology is a major area of study aboard Federation starships. On a planetary scale, geology can be used to predict how a planet will develop over time. One who studies geology is known as a geologist or exogeologist.
