Need an research paper on the geology of beirut. Needs to be 5 pages. Please no plagiarism. Past records of the geologic information of Beirut indicate that the rock structure and strata in the region have been changing over time due to the changes taking place in the region and even beyond. Such changes include the occurrences of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and other related earth movement processes.
These processes, as Gradstein & Ogg (1996) notes lead to a lot of changes occurring over the surface of the earth. As Flexer, Honigstein, Rosenfeld, & Polishook (1990) notes, earth movement processes mainly affect the surface and sub-surface rocks but have very little effects on the rock lying deeper under the earth’s surface. The evidence of such changes and effects has been noted in the quarry mines and other geological processes taking place in and around the Beirut region. This paper discusses the geological orientation and composition of Beirut from pre-historic times to the present date. The changes that have occurred in the geological composition of the region have been traced and documented. Detailed illustration of the effects of various natural and human-induced processes such as volcanicity, earthquakes and earth building processes including road building, earth blasting which have been responsible for the geology of the region have been documented for further reference too.
This section discusses various geological components of the lands in and around Beirut. The various processes and activities that have resulted in the changes that have occurred in the geological characterization of the lands of Beirut have been detailed and documented for further clarification.
The Beirut landmass is mainly an expansive oil field characterized by a great variety of oil rocks. Much of the crustal segments are made up of the carbonate platforms that were deposited on the northwestern regions of the Arabian plate. .A lot of geologic works going on in the region and characterization of the geological processes here have been extensively conducted in the coastal regions where a lot of activities are taking place. The coastal landforms and coast building processes have had great and extensive influence on the geologic formations of the region from the historic past (Hirsch & Picard, 1988).
