CAREER OPPORTUNITIES AND RESOURCES

WHAT DO PROFESSIONAL GEOLOGISTS DO?

Geologists do much more than study rocks. A geologist gathers and interprets data about the Earth and uses that knowledge to improve the quality of human life. They help find and develop our natural resources such as drinking water, minerals, and oil  and gas in ways that safeguard the environment. Geologists provide critical information to protect us from natural and man-made hazards including earthquakes, landslides, flooding, and chemical spills – all of which have dominated the recent headlines in New York State.
