    An ice age here, a million years of mountain-building there

    THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION》:
    "Andy loved geology. I imagine it appealed to his meticulous nature.
    An ice age here, a million years of mountain-building there,Geology is the study of pressure and time. That's all it takes, really. Pressure and time."
    How to understand this passage?
    Thanks a lot!
