CAREER IN GEOLOGY

Most geologists work or supervise exploration work at a variety of sites-deserts, land forms, ocean floors, riverbeds, mountains, etc. Research as well as scientific study is generally carried out by most organisations involved in geological work. Geological work involves location of physical data and material by drilling of  deep holes to obtain samples for studying materials found on or near the earth's surface and in the sea. They analyse information collected through seismic prospecting which involves bouncing sound waves off deeply buried rock layers; examine surface rocks and samples of buried rocks, study information collected by satellites. They identify rocks, minerals, and fossils, conduct geological surveys, construct maps and use instruments such as the gravimeter and magnetometer to measure the earth's gravity and magnetic field. A very important application of geological research is the location of oil, natural gas and minerals.
