Geology essentials

The study of geology and its related sciences have been classified into two main areas, these being rocks and consolidated materials. While the former involves the study and research of major types of rock such as igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic, the latter focuses on the study of material deposits on rocks. Geology involves the study of predicting dates of geologic events through relative and absolute dating methods. Relative dating of geological events involves principles relating to intrusive relationships, uniformitarianism, cross-cutting relationships, inclusions and components, superposition and faunal succession. A number of geology courses details the knowledge and skills required to apply these principles and methods.

There are different specialist fields of study in geology (a mix of fieldwork, laboratory work and numerical modeling techniques) such as:

  • Geological mapping: structural, surficial and structural mapping
  • Topographic features study: study of erosion and deposition processes
  • Biochemical pathways study
  • Species and organisms of rock origins
  • Paleontology
  • Glaciology
  • Drilling and logging
  • Geophysical sciences

The field of geological sciences includes studies of economic geology, engineering geology, geochemistry, petrology, petrophysics and statigraphy.

All of these areas and more are catered for by training providers who offer geology courses.

Career prospects for professionals specializing in Geology

Geology degrees can come in handy for different employment options such as research and development, academic professions, and field and laboratory work. Common job positions held by geologists include engineering geologists, seismic interpreters, field seismologists, geochemists, wellsite geologists, hydrogeologists, drilling engineers, minerals surveyors and environmental consultants.

Skills for succeeding in geology professions

There are certain skills imperative to succeeding in geological-specialized professions such as keen observational skills, mathematical skills, statistical skills, engineering skills, data collection and interpretation, report writing, verbal and written communication skills, graphical and team working skills.

Benefits for professionals and the importance of geology

Geological sciences are important for research and development studies and they contribute in many different ways:

  • It contributes to predicting earth systems behavior.
  • Geological sciences contribute towards locating natural resources on the planet such as soil, rocks and water.
  • It contributes to agricultural productivity.
  • It helps in predicting natural hazards and disasters such as floods, earthquakes, landslides and other natural catastrophes.
  • Geology contributes to the understanding of global climate patterns.

The study of geology is important since it involves dealing with investigation of the earth’s natural resources, establishing government policies regarding environmental issues and welfare campaigns for communities. Taking a geology course is your gateway to this very exciting field.
