Description of Geology
Work on environmental problems, research, teaching and the topical issue of exploring for oil or mineral resources
are all typical of positions for a Geologist. Geology is a broad interdisciplinary science that involves the study of
Earth and its history. Geologists often divide their time between work in the field, the laboratory and the office. A
career as a professional geologist often requires graduate training. Geologists are employed with environmental
consulting companies, federal and state geological surveys, a wide range of government agencies, petroleum and
mining companies, highway departments, oceanographic institutes, and as secondary or college teachers. Geologists
gather and interpret data about the Earth for the purpose of increasing our knowledge about natural resources and
Earth processes and for providing basic information required for establishing policy for resource management and
environmental protection.
