Geology is the study of planet Earth. Geologists study the materials (rocks, minerals, gemstones, fossils) and processes (earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis) that make up and alter the appearance of the surface of our planet.
Exploration work – looking for water, minerals, gems, oil, and other energy sources
Environmental work – site cleanup and contamination remediation
Geotechnical work – investigation of soils, dam sites, building sites, and landfills
Hazards mitigation – studying earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, and tsunamis
