Myth & Geology
The term "geomythology" was first coined in 1968 by Dorothy B. Vitaliano, a geologist from Indiana University.
Geomythology is now a growing scientific field that explores myths to determine if their origins can be explained by geological phenomena, such as earthquakes, tsunamis and floods. In a broader sense, geomythology also looks at the potential role astronomical events play, including comets, eclipses and meteor impacts.
