Geologists study the earth materials that make up our planet, along with the processes (earthquakes, floods, landslides, etc.) and the history that have shaped it.

As a geologist, your projects could include:

  • Finding geological formations in the earth to safely store the carbon dioxide from Carbon Capture Storage (CCS) and to safely dispose the nuclear waste from nuclear plants;
  • Locating areas rich in geothermal energy to provide a natural hot-water source for communities and for generating electricity.

Your work would make low-carbon energy solutions more secure and accessible and help develop natural resources in ways that safeguard the environment.
