Global Impact Through Geology and Geophysics

Geologists study planet Earth, its history, evolution and physical properties and Geophysicists apply the principles of physics to these same endeavors. Discovery in Geology comes from studying the processes of Earth such as tectonics, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, flood and landslides and promotes innovation by protecting resources of our planet such as oil, gas, water and metals. Geophysicists use the principals of physics to find oil and minerals, study and predict geological hazards and illuminate understanding of the internal structure of our Earth, including earthquake science, the ocean and other physical features. The physical world is the Geologist and Geophysicist¹s laboratory and where global impact happens.
