Transcript of Geology

What is Geology? Geology is the study of the earth and the materials of which it is made of, the physical and chemical processes that occur on its surface and in its interior, and also the history of the planet and its life forms There are many different types of careers in geology. Some of which inclued... A meteorologists You can find A meteorologists working on the forcasts for your town or state.Predicting the how the weather will be next is thier main focus.It is up to these people to decided whether the people should be alerted. Volcanologists volcanologists are geologists, who specialize in the study of volcanoes. This is a highly challenging, yet rewarding career, where most probably you will be spending a lot of time in Hawaii Although there are many more exciting career opportunities in the geosciences the most interesting to me and the path I will be taking will be mineralogy. A minerologist searches for different minerals in many the three major rock types. Which are..... Minerals found in Igneous rocks are..
Augite Olivine And the most common mineral on earth Quartz Minerals found in metamorphic rocks like Garnet Also minerals found in sedimentary rocks such as Halite Gypsum I am fascinated by the beauty of all these gems, crystals and rocks.Seeing the beauty of the earth in such a small object is unbelieveable. My dream by taking this pathway is hopeing that this career can take me to see new places and discover something new. To find a job in the geoscience community one must have a good education. A bachlor's degree is the minimum education needed to work at an entry level position. Although many companies require an master's degree, and for any supervising or managerial positions a docterate must be obtained. But although it will take a couple of years to get the required education, the hard work and dedication to the study will pay off. Senior Capstone

Paleontologists study Earth history and fossils.

Stratigraphers study how layers of sedimentary rock form though geologic time.
