Dumont was born at Liège. Liège (ljɛːʒ Older English: Luick, Walloon: Lidje, German: Lüttich; Latin: Leodium, Dutch His first work was a masterly Mémoire on the geology of the province of Liege published in 1832. Year 1832 ( MDCCCXXXII) was a Leap year starting on Sunday (link will display the full calendar of the Gregorian A few years later he became professor of mineralogy and geology and afterwards rector in the University of Liege. Mineralogy is an Earth Science focused around the Chemistry, Crystal structure, and physical (including optical) properties of Minerals The University of Liège ( ULg) in Liège, Wallonia, Belgium, is a major Public university in the French Community of Belgium His attention was then given to the mineralogical and stratigraphical characters of the geological formations in Belgium and the names given by him to many subdivisions of Cretaceous and Tertiary ages have been adopted. The Cretaceous (kriːˈteɪʃəs, usually abbreviated 'K' for its German translation "Kreide" is a geologic period and system, reaching from the end of The chuprichondira geological time interval covers roughly the time span between the demise of the non- avian Dinosaurs and beginning of the most recent Ice Age, approximately
His Mémoire sur les terrains ardennais et rhénan de l'Ardenne, du Brabant et du Condroz (1847-1848) is notable for the care with which the mineral characters of the strata were described, but the palaeontological characters were insufficiently considered, and neither the terms Silurian nor Devonian were adopted.
During twenty years he laboured at the preparation of a geological map of Belgium (1849). A geologic map or geological map is a special-purpose Map made to show Geological features Year 1849 ( MDCCCXLIX) was a Common year starting on Monday (link will display the full calendar of the Gregorian calendar (or a Common He spared no pains to make his work as complete as possible, examining on foot almost every area of importance in the country. Journeying to the more southern parts of Europe, he investigated the shores of the Bosphorus, the mountains of Spain and other tracts, and gradually gathered materials for a geological map of Europe: a work of high merit which was one of the first serious attempts to establish on a larger scale the geological correlation of the various countries of Europe. The Bosporus or Bosphorus, also known as the Istanbul Strait, (İstanbul Boğazı (Βόσπορος is a Strait that forms the boundary between the Spain () or the Kingdom of Spain (Reino de España is a country located mostly in southwestern Europe on the Iberian Peninsula. u The Geological Society of London awarded him in 1840 the Wollaston medal.
