THE ROLE OF GEOLOGY IN TODAYS SOCIETY
With key issues and concerns related to geological hazards, water resources, shale gas and other energy needs, the need for geologists should be growing. Also, as our natural resources are harder to develop, creativity by geologists is required to work around complex problems of location and transportation. Regulatory knowledge is key to solving geological problems and finding practical solutions to both the needs of communities and agencies to protect and preserve resources for the future.
