Careers in Geosciences

What do Geoscientists do?

Although a great amount has been learned about the Earth, much more is yet to be discovered. Geoscience is everywhere. Geoscientists:

  • Study and help mitigate volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, floods, and landslides 
  • Discover and help develop groundwater supplies, construction materials, mineral ores, and fossil fuels
  • Explore new ideas about the natural world from the core of the Earth, to the the depths of the oceans, to the outer reaches of space
  • Study physical and chemical processes in order to understand the origin and distribution of resources
  • Provide scientific counsel and advice on preserving the environment, improving ecologically damaged areas, and determining the environmental impact of land development
  • Work with people, data, information, ideas, and technology in the field and in the laboratory
