Mineralogist

JOB DESCRIPTION: A mineralogist is a person who studies minerals. A mineral is a naturally occurring solid. The earth is made from thousands of minerals made of various elements. Rocks are composed of a variety of minerals. Mineralogists study rocks, gems and other minerals to find out more about them. Some mineralogists work for mining companies to enhance the processing of minerals from ores. Most other mineralogists work in laboratories at universities. Their findings can be used to tell us more about the environment.

JOB DESCRIPTION: Meteorologists study and predict the weather. To do this they collect data about the atmosphere from weather stations and satellites. They use this data to make short-term weather predictions (e.g. it will rain tomorrow), and sometimes long-term climate predictions (e.g. the sea level will rise over the next 50 years). and our lives.
