From the earth’s crust to deep into its core, we recognize Geologists Day on the first Sunday in April.
Geologists study the history, structure, and impact of other processes on the earth. Their discoveries and research play an essential role in our daily lives. Geology blends well with other sciences such as chemistry and physics. In fact, they are necessary for agriculture, architecture and weather prediction.
Those who pursue a geology degree open up a wide range of careers. From oceanography to NASA, education, government, and research, geology offers a worldview to applicants.
Hobbyists and enthusiasts have a place in geology, too. Even amateur geologists contribute to the science from time to time. That’s part of the intrigue of geology and why we celebrate Geologist Day.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Learn something from a geologist or about one of their discoveries. Visit a museum to learn about paleontology or how our earth is changing. Use #GeologistsDay to share on social media.
The USSR first declared Geologist Day in 1966.
