Geologists generally measure and test different aspects of the earth, such as gravity, magnetic fields, minerals, rocks, and even basic elements. They may use seismographs, x-rays, and many other instruments to accomplish these tasks as well as investigate the history of the earth itself. Geologists are also employed for many practical tasks, including identifying suitable materials for concrete, making maps for land use or extraction of minerals, and identifying risks for disasters such as landslides or earthquakes. They may also determine if certain resources are available in different areas, such as natural gas deposits, oil, and underground water. They may also provide advice on public works activities such as waste management or restoration.
Geologists may be employed at constructions sites to address engineering problems, land use, or resource management, so knowledge of construction equipment is beneficial for this position. Safety is always the top priority for geologists, and they must be familiar with all public safety regulations to ensure that events, processes, and equipment comply with all local and federal laws.
