A geologist is a scientist who studies the Earth, its composition, structure, processes and its history. They analyse rocks, minerals and fossils to understand the planet’s history and to uncover fossilised artefacts. Geologists could also conduct fieldwork, collect samples and use tools and techniques to understand geological data. They play an important role in industries such as mining, oil and gas exploration, environmental management and natural hazard assessment. Their work has contributed so much just for us to understand the Earth’s past, present and future of the Earth.



The daily duties of a geologist may differ depending on the workplace. For example, geologists may teach at a university or they might even work for an environmental agency. They could also work for a metal production company where they’ll focus on quality control or an oil production company where they’ll be evaluating the performance of the machinery. A geologist’s job duties depend on the requirements of each position.
