Rocks, crystals, fossils, volcanoes…. boots, hammer, map, satellite images and microscopes. 150 years ago, adventurous geologists explored our planet to uncover the secrets of geology with a hammer in their hand. Today they use cutting edge technology such as electron microscopes, satellite imaging, laser scanners, and robots.
What does the average day of a geologist look like today?
What can you expect if you choose to be a geologist?
