In physics, cryogenics is the study of the production of very low temperature (below 150 C, 238 F or 123 K) and the behavior of materials at those temperatures. Gemology or gemmology is the science dealing with natural and artificial gems and gemstones.

FORMAL SCIENCE A formal science is a branch of knowledge that is concerned with formal systems, for instance, logic, mathematics, systems theory, computer science, information theory, decision theory, statistics, and some aspects of linguistics. Mathematics is the study of quantity, structure, space, and change. Logic (from the Greek logik) reasoning.

Volcanology (also spelled vulcanology) is the study of volcanoes, lava, magma, and related geological, geophysical and geochemical phenomena. Petrology (from Greek: , petra, rock; and , logos, knowledge) is the branch of geology that studies rocks, and the conditions in which rocks form. Mineralogy is the study of chemistry, crystal structure, and physical (including optical) properties of minerals. Paleontology is the study of the fossil evidence for all life on planet earthplant and animal alike. Oceanography (compound of the Greek words meaning "ocean" and meaning "to write"), also called oceanology or marine science, is the branch of Earth science that studies the ocean.

Taxonomy is the practice and science of classification. The word finds its roots in the Greek , taxis (meaning 'order' or 'arrangement') and , nomos (meaning 'law' or 'science'). Ecology (from Greek: , "house" or "living relations"; , "study of") is the scientific study of the distributions, abundance, share affects, and relations of organisms and their interactions with each other in a common environment. Anatomy (from the Greek anatomia, from ana: separate, apart from, and temnein, to cut up, cut open.) is a branch of biology and medicine that is the consideration of the structure of living things. Cytology (from Greek , kytos, "a hollow" ; and -, logia) means "the study of cells". Histology (compound of the Greek words: "tissue", and -logia) is the study of the microscopic anatomy of cells and tissues of plants and animals.
