JOB DESCRIPTION: Earth Scientists study the earth and its atmosphere. Earth science can be split into lots of different branches. The four basic areas of earth science are:
1. Astronomy (science of the universe)
2. Geology (science of the earth)
3. Oceanography (science of the oceans)
4. Meteorology (science of the atmosphere)
Earth scientists can often be found working ‘in the field’ to collect samples and data. They may then take this back to a laboratory for analysis. Their findings can be used to help protect our earth and its inhabitants.
