Li Siguang (1889-1971), one of China's most famous geologists, founded a branch of geology called geomechanics, which deals with the stresses and strains on the earth's crust. Geomechanics studies how soil and rock behave in response to natural forces. He also made important contributions to the sciences of paleontology (study of fossils), glaciology (study of glaciers), and seismology (study of earthquakes).
