        Welcome to the geolgist page! On this page we will talk about a geologists life. If you want to become a geolgist, you should read this page. We will try to update this page as much as we can. First we will start out with a few simple tools a geologist uses.

                                                                                                     This is a hardhat. 

                                                                                                  Behold, a hammer! He He He! 

                                                                                         This is a pouch that a geologist is to put his stuff in. 

Ok! now that we've got to the basic stuff let's talk about a geologist's life. What does a geologist do? Well a geologist is (a scientist who studies the structure of the earth. Now if you're wondering who studies igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks, that would be the Petrologist. If a scientist is needed in those parts then he will respond. But usually, a geologist will do soil samples, study volcanoes and earthquakes, and also study weathering. Weathering is(the process by which rocks break down by either physical or chemical weathering. 

                                                                                            Here is a geologist taking a soil sample! 

                                                This picture is of a bunch of students , led by a geologist, studying a volcano.  

Volcanoes can be very dangerous. You should ALWAYS, ALWAYS be with an experienced person when near a volcano. Here are some volcano pictures!
