What to study: Geology or Physics?

Hi everyone, I’m a recent high school graduate faced with having to decide upon a college major ideally by the end of this year. Right now, I’m on the path of physics because I find it fascinating and am fairly good at mathematics. I don’t have a strong idea, however, of what I would do post graduation if I don’t attend grad school.

With geology on the other hand, I’ve always loved science and nature. I’d really like to have some benefit upon the environment in my life no matter how minuscule. From what I see on this sub though, environmental geology careers seem pretty bleak. I really don’t care much about salary as long as I can reasonably support myself, but I’m more so worried about simply getting a job.

From my understanding it seems physics majors might have stronger job prospects, but this would really mean nothing to me if I can’t get into research or end up in a purposeful job. What would you do in my situation? I appreciate any feedback you all might have!

Value of old Geology texts to active / prospective geologists?

I am helping with cleaning out the shared office of my deceased uncle and Aunt, as my aunt prepares to move into a retirement home. He was a career geologist with the USGS, and she was a career archaeologist specializing in dating volcanic ash... they have a good sized library of Geology and archaeology books... reference texts, not textbooks. Most of them I can't find any reference to in google, at least in brief page 1 searches.

How much do these fields change? Are older books like this of any value to anyone, or has the state of the art changed enough to make them useless? My aunt would much rather see them go to someone who might use them, rather than into the dumpster, but with COVID the libraries around here aren't accepting donations, and neither is the first university library I reached out to... I thought I would try to get more information before I spent more time trying to find someone to give them to.

Should I take a pay cut to get back into my geology career?

Back story: finished my MS in Geology less than 2 years ago, pursued petroleum geo, learned I went to the wrong school. Started consulting, then prices dropped, covid, etc. I jumped on a non-geology government job, and currently make ~44k/year. I’ve been watching and applying for environmental, government, and out of state geo jobs, but haven’t gotten any traction. A research position just popped up at a university near me that’s very similar to my MS thesis research, but I’d have to take a 25% pay cut, and Give up my benefits to take it. The position only allows for <20 hrs/week, so I’d have loads more time (I’m working 8-12 hrs/day, 6 days a week now) but the pay cut would still sting: kids, mortgage, student loans, etc.. The research position is only funded for a year, so should I give up a secure job I hate to try and further the career I love?

Geology Careers in Space

Hi guys, rising college sophomore here.

I haven't taken any geology courses for my major yet, but I will be taking physical geology in the Fall. I know I've been dead set on having a career related to the space field, so I'm looking for advice. Can anyone recommend what I should do to better my chances at working in a space-related field?

I've tried finding AMAs regarding this but there aren't many of them, and most don't answer my questions. I know it's sort of rare for geology majors to work in a space-related field but it's something I know I really want to do. I understand that I may have better luck being a physics/engineering major but I'm happy as a geology major, and I don't think I specifically need to be a physics/engineering major to pursue work in this field. The geology major at my university requires so little that it allows me to take more courses outside the major, which is what I like so much about it.

Pursing a masters in geophysics with a math BS, no formal geology coursework

Hi All,

I have a BS in mathematics and for the last 9 years have been working as a seismic data processor for an oil exploration company. I found that I really enjoyed the geophysics subject matter and wanted to pursue the career further. At the beginning of this year, I took an opportunity with my company to move to Houston to start a new position managing their new data processing center so I could look further at pursuing a masters degree while working.

Then COVID happened. The industry was decimated, my projects were cancelled, and I was laid off. However, I haven't stopped looking into a master program. Initially, I wanted to pursue the non-thesis professional masters in geophysics at UH as it would have allowed me to continue working at my previous job. However, I've read both here on Reddit and elsewhere that a non-thesis masters is considered a really poor choice for the energy industry, especially if not employed by a company where you can use the skills you pick up in the p

Furthering my Geology Education- what Direction should I take?

Recently, I've been in a bit of a stump. I'm currently going into my Junior year in college this fall semester as a geology major and I'm scrambling to find something in geology that captures my attention. This may come off as unenthusiastic, but rather, it's quite the opposite. Everything is just so interesting that I don't know where to specialize within the field.
I'm particularly big on nature preservation, and I go to an ecologically focused school. As such, I'm hesitant to go into the mining industry due to the horrid effects it has on the environment- and I'm even more repelled from the fossil fuels industry for very obvious reasons. Perhaps the only exception to mining that would be of interest to me would be Thorium mining, but I don't know exactly where to go with something like this and maintain my values as someone who cares about the environment.
Other than all of that, I'm rather open to many other fields in geology and would love ideas and opinions.

Tools/things that would make good gifts for someone interested in radiogeology and field geology?

I have been racking my brain trying to come up with a gift for someone (trained geological engineer, but no longer works in this field) who thoroughly enjoys radiogeology and field geology.

I have gone out several times with him to former sites where they have done digging for radioactive minerals. He has a geiger counter (relatively modern one---hooks up to his computer, etc.) that he really enjoys using at these sites, and taking samples and the likes. However, I am not too well-informed on what field tools radiogeologists use (I'd guess most are lab tools). Is there anything that jumps to mind that would be relevant here that is giftable (price flexible, just < $1,000 would be appreciated)? Previously I have gifted textbooks on radiogeology.

I used the r/geologycareers salary survey to compare entry level environmental geology positions to other popular majors.

The title pretty much says it all. I recently got a job in the environmental field and have been curious as to why so many people are negative towards it. It is super discouraging. The main complaints are long hours and terrible pay. I thought I would tackle one of these issues to see how environmental geologists compare to other popular majors. Here is the link to the results: https://imgur.com/a/ZWbyJuH

To complete this study I used the salary survey raw data from /u/sparcespade to find the average entry level salary (less than 3 years experience). The average pay turned out to be little more than $54,000. After finding the average I researched to find what the top six majors are right now. I found their average entry level salaries from at least three different sources and took the mean of that. Compared to these majors, the results from the salary survey show that this is the second most lucrative field in my study.

Some disclaimers:

There are some obvious holes in this study.

Geology is not a β€˜soft’ or β€˜easy’ science and needs to be respected as a field.

This might be an opinion not many people know exists, and honestly is only a thing I’ve ever heard undergrads in β€˜hard’ sciences (ie biology, chemistry, etc) have. But often people hear geology and assume it’s easy and not a β€˜real’ science, probably because they don’t know what it is. I think, because it’s very interdisciplinary, people assume it’s just a watered down version of each topic. Not many people realize that physics (the theoretical type) and geophysics are very different. Or that geomorphology is a field in an of itself.

People, again mostly undergrads in other sciences, are generally demeaning and discuss how their science is much more difficult because it’s more abstract. I have two examples of people not understanding or respecting geology as a field, which are different.

One is that, while working at my uni’s student union, one of the chefs laughed at me when I said my major was geology because she β€˜didn’t know anyone could get a degree in that’ in a demeaning tone.

It’s your body and your choice, but I don’t think it’s a good idea”. I just don’t know what to think, part of me thinks she might be right, and the other part says that it won’t matter as long as it doesn’t show when you are dressed up for a job.

Geology and Faith

Introduction

When I was in college, I took a fantastic geology class with a quirky but intelligent professor. I never thought I'd be so fascinated with rocks and creation itself. At the time, I was an atheist, even an anti-theist.

During one of the lectures, the professor discussed one of the major laws of Geology - "The Law of Uniformitarianism."

This law "is the assumption that the same natural laws and processes that operate in our present-day scientific observations have always operated in the universe in the past and apply everywhere in the universe."

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniformitarianism

Interestingly, one of the slides (that she kind of skipped over), said some scientists criticize this law because it contains a sort of "circular reasoning." (Has anyone heard that before about the Bible?) These processes are true because these processes are true and the law says it kind of thinking.

Faith

To break this down, this law seems logical, but you still have

Was the prophecy about Japheth related to earth geology and climate? Very likely yes!

After the flood there was a incident with a drunk Noah and his sons. He blessed one son Japheth by saying he would enlarge him. this means his descendants would, relative to the others, be more enlarged over earths surface in possession. not meaning about population. YET if this was to happen then the other two sons descendants must be stopped from covering the earth. So , as at babel, God had to intervene in a practical way . He had to interfere wit the landscapes ability to crate food. So I suggest the origin for the past flood change of a tropical world into a ice age world was done to stop Asian etc migration into the new world and norther Eurasia . This by destroying the easy way of fora to survive for to be changed into food and the restriction of creatures for simple hunting. this is the only reason the whole world is not a delightful tropoical place. instead it was very bad at first and still chilly these days in northern areas. thus people did not find enough food to live in

Questions regarding a PhD in Structural Geology

I know, another academia question, I'm sorry. I've been scrolling though past posts but advice seems tailored to specific sub-fields in geology, and those are usually igneous petrology or hydrology related. I very rarely see anything about structural geology so I figured I'd give it a whirl and ask y'all for advice. (USA-based)

I've just finished my first year in graduate school and I am having an absolute blast. Holy heck I am living the dream. By the summer of 2021 I'll have graduated with a M.Sc. in geology from a state school with a thesis investigating shear zones via microstructural fabrics and EBSD maps. I want to keep learning and researching shear zones at a doctorate level, but I wonder if it is prudent for the following reasons:

  • General advice on this sub is to only go for a PhD if you need it for the industry, or to go into academia.
    • I don't need it for industry. I already have a few years of industry experience, passed my FG, and will get my Masters soon

Geology to Landscape Architecture

I have a buddy who has become disenchanted with geology, he has a masters and is finding that most of his time is spent in an office at a computer, he works for the government. He wants to be more creative and spend more time outside. I'm wondering after reading a lot of posts here and information in other places, would switching from geology to LA give him more of those two things?

UGA Geology?

Hi all.

I’m entering my sophomore year at UGA, and my credit hours are allowing me to graduate early (I understand that’s an insufferable thing to say, but hear me out). Because of this, I’m very close to being a junior, meaning I need to decide on a major.

As of now, I’m an English major with pre-law intent, but I’ve always been hesitant about being a lawyer.

I’ve always been fascinated by geology, and I took a geology class at UGA last summer and loved it. That being said, I know many people in the field that are underpaid in an already underemployed field. If anyone who is currently enrolled as a geology major or graduated from UGA with a degree in geology could give me some advice on the program and the opportunities after graduation, I would be incredibly grateful.

All the best.

Edit: I’ve decided on Geology! Thank you all for the help.

Advice for choosing jobs outside of geology with an eye to return later

Hello r/Geologycareers, I have a B.S. in geology and served in the Peace Corps for two years (environment/agriculture), and now have some informal offers for U.S. federal jobs. I would like to jump back into the earth sciences eventually, but after being mostly unemployed for a year* and not having luck with 150+ of geology applications I need to be doing something. Do you see any obvious pathways back into earth science from these positions (public or private sector)?

Any opinions from people working in the earth sciences are welcome, but input from people closer to making hiring decisions is most desired!

Option 1: Engineering Technician for Forest Service- mostly for paved and logging roads, some drainage, supervising contractors etc. Indoor and outdoor work a bit of non-calculus math, GIS, AUTOCAD, surveying, getting some materials testing certifications

Option 2: Radiological Controls Technician- monitor work environments (Naval Ship Yards) for radioactivity, supervise tr

Exploration geology/geophysics to Mining Engineer?

Hello, I have a degree in earth sciences with concentration in geophysics from a canadian university and less than 2 years experience in exploration. Been thinking of possibly making the transition into mining engineering. What's the best way to go about this and be able to quickly land work out of school? Because of my physics concentration, I have the necessary upper level math courses and what not, just lack the core eng classes. Double major? Get a thesis based or course based masters in mining eng?

Right now my thoughts are to join SDSM for a course based masters in mining eng - that is if they take me with current credentials.

The real geology of the Joggins Formation

Geologists have known the age of the earth is much older than Ussher believed since the turn 19th century. A literal who’s who of historical geologists including Lyell, Darwin, Dawson (who spent more than 50 years studying the cliffs) and Walcott all spent time studying the rocks at Joggins. Countless maps, cross sections and vertical sections have been produced. Paul’s latest blog post titled β€˜How the Joggins polystrate fossils falsify long ages’ attempts (and fails) to undermine two hundred years of geology without using a single map, horizontal section, or vertical section. Paul is correct in stating that rapid deposition occurred at Joggins, no one disputes that. The problem that Paul fails explain is how a single event of rapid deposition was able preserving multiple terrestrial ecosystems providing us with an incredible glimpse into the Westphalian. To say nothing of how this flooding event was global.

Civil-Environmental engineering major or geology major?

I’m headed off to school next year and I know that I want to work with the earth. I am stuck between majoring in civil-environmental engineering or majoring in geology.

Some quick pros and cons of each, I can get a full ride with CEE and only a half ride with geology, I would have a job lined up directly out of school for CEE, I think I would enjoy a geology undergrad 10x more but I would enjoy the CEE job prospects a bit more than the geology prospects. I plan to join the Air Force through ROTC as well. Atmospheric science is also a major in considering but I feel like there are far fewer job prospects with Atmos Sci and less jobs in the vein of stuff I really like.

Getting a start in a mining related geology

Greetings, I am a recent graduate (Fall 2019) with a bachelor's in General Geology, I never specified as no particular geology degree sparked my interest besides mineralogy and petrology. When I looked at industry jobs for geology, I took an interest in mining over oil and gas. I applied to a various number of places, including non mining jobs, and have not heard anything back from most of my applications, which could be heavily affected by the ongoing quarantine and virus outbreak.

Within the last week, I did receive an "offer," more interest in hiring me than an actual offer, for a contract Core Technician position in the Patagonia area in Arizona. A large part of me wants to just take any job offer that someone makes, but I was seeking advice on whether or not this is a good step forward into the mining industry and makes use of my geology background.

A few more concerns that I would like to add is that would it be beneficial for me to pursue graduate school if I am interested in
