  Geologist - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A geologist is a contributor to the science of geology, studying the physical structure and processes of the Earth and planets of the solar system (see planetary geology).
An engineering geologist (a geologist trained, experienced and certified in the field of engineering geology) is called upon to investigate geologic hazards and geologic constraints for the planning, design and construction of public and private engineering projects, forensic and post-mortem studies, environmental impact analysis.
Petroleum and mining companies use mudloggers (or wellsite geologist) and large-scale land developers use geologists' and engineering geologists' skills to help them locate oil and minerals, adapt to local features such as karst deposits or the risk of earthquakes, and comply with environmental regulations.

 Geologist
Geologists study the physical structure and processes of the Earth.
Their undergraduate training typically includes significant coursework in chemistry, physics, and mathematics, in addition to classes offered through the geology department; volcanology, hydrology, and rock and mineral formation are among the many areas of study.
Petroleum and mining companies and large-scale land developers need geologists' skills to help them locate oil and minerals, adapt to local features such as karst deposits or the risk of earthquakes, and comply with environmental regulations.

 About Geology...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Geologists commonly work with engineers in discovering pollution of the soil and groundwater, in developing plans for pollution control or remediation, in siting and developing waste disposal sites, in road and dam construction, or in evaluations of risk and planning designed to minimize the loss of life due to floods, volcanic eruptions, or earthquakes.
Furthermore, some geologists in industries, such as the petroleum industry, teach their colleagues via seminars and short courses, in addition to doing the research that is their primary responsibility.
Geologists work on virtually every continent from the tropics to the poles and on and under the surface of the oceans.

Many geologists are involved in exploration for mineral and energy resources, using their specialized knowledge to locate the natural resources on which our industrialized society is based.
As the demand for these nonrenewable resources increases, geologists are applying the basic principles of geology in increasingly sophisticated ways to help focus their attention on areas with a high potential for economic success.
Geologists are also involved in making short- and long-range predictions about earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and the potential destruction that may result.

Detailed core descriptions, wireline log correlations, and direct measurement of permeability of the cores were all used to create maps and cross-sections of the field and interpret the distribution of "pay" sandstones within the field both vertically and laterally.
Geologists R.R. McDowell, K.L. Avary, and D.L. Matchen are principal investigators in bedrock mapping and geochemical sampling of the Circleville and Thornwood 7.5-minute quadrangles, Pendleton, Pocahontas, and Randolph counties and Highland County, Virginia.
Data for the field were acquired from the operator; digitizing of wireline logs and description of the cores was completed; permeabilty data were acquired from the cores using the minipermeater; maps of reservoir properties were created; and permeability and other petrophysical properties of the reservoir were analyzed and modeled.

Geologists study mineral resources, including the location and movement of oil and water in the Earth; hazards such as earthquakes, landslides, and volcanic eruptions; polluted ground water; and land use planning.
This is driven by the important role geologists play in exploration for petroleum and other fuels, metals and building materials.
However, there are many opportunities in the public, academic and nonprofit sectors, as well, driven by the growing public concern for the environment and the continuing need to better understand natural hazards such as earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, and floods for the protection of the public.
