Earth Sciences deals with study and research in
Various fields and concepts of Geology,
Examination and utilization of natural resources
Their management, sustenance and conservation.
Earth Sciences/Geography, studies climatic/
Weather conditions of different regions with
Periodic developments, their effects, natural
Resources like water, mineral survey, earth and
Ocean characteristics and its science, air, rain,clouds and rivers aspects, monitoring of
geographical environments, forests and weather forecast. The special study are in this
field like Economic & Political Geography,Human Geography, Cultural Geography,
Environment and Natural Resources Studies. The other aspects of Geography include Geomorphology, Climatology, Oceanography,Meteorology, Cartography, Geographic
Information Systems and other allied areas

DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR EARTH SCIENCES/GEOGRAPHY
Engineering Geologists – Engineering Geologists investigates the site before any foundation or earthworks are started for a very large civil engineering project begins. Environmental Geologists are concerned with the issues related to the disposal of waste of all its types which evaluate the environmental impact of the construction projects.
Geo-Hydrologists take care of the water. They asses and analyze the sources and identify the threats to eliminate water pollution. They play a crucial role in the construction of reservoirs.
Geomorphologists – It is a study related to erosion and glaciations. They study the process of erosion and glaciations and takes necessary remediation to eliminate the issue.
Hydrologists and Mineralogists are responsible for identifying, measuring and analyze the source of water and minerals. Mineralogist analyzes the minerals and precious stones in rocks and mineral and determines its usage in various industries.
Marine Geologists is a role who studies the physical aspects of the oceans and its current streams.
Petroleum Geologists is a very important and most demanding job role. They conduct the tests and locate the presence of the natural gas, and oil deposits both onshore and offshore sites.
Paleontologists study ancient fossils. They help in tracing the evolution of plant and animal life and estimate their existence on the earth.
Seismologists are a job role where they interpret the data of the earth tectonic moments and identify the earthquakes and earthquakes prove areas.
Stratigraphers are the study of the distribution and arrangement of sedimentary rock layers of both land and the sea. They help us in understanding and having the knowledge of the layers and it’s a distribution of 5he land and sea.
Geologists– It is the most common role where the jobs main prospect is to teach and carry out academic research in universities and colleges.
Apart from these job prospects, there are some specific job roles which are designed to meet up the industry demands like.
Remote sensing Specialist
Mining or marine engineer
