Geomythology



the emerging discipline of Geomythology has been in the news lately, as earth scientists are beginning to seek out and pay attention to local oral traditions and perceptive knowledge of natural phenomena like fossils and global warming and natural disasters like volcanoes, tsumamis, and earthquakes.

For the first time, "Geomythology" has an extensive entry, with definition and examples, in the most recent edition of the Encyclopedia of Geology:


"Geomythology." In Encyclopedia of Geology, ed Richard Selley, Robin Cocks, and Ian Palmer. Oxford: Elsevier, 2004.
