Geology

8/13/2013 Career

Geology is the study of the Earth's origin, history and composition etc. Its
sub-branches are mineralogy, structural geology,
geomorphology, planetology and geological engineering etc. A person who carries
out these studies is known as geologist.



The roles of geologists are very vital while exploring mineral wealth and
natural resources. The geologists also determine conditions suitable for
constructing railway lines, roads, bridges, buildings etc.



Geologists explore under-water resources and gas fields deep in the sea. They
conduct tests to measure quality of soil by conducting geo-physical and
geo-chemical tests.



Geology Eligibility Criteria
