Some of the sciences geologists study are physics and chemistry (12). English is also a subject that geologists use when communicating with other scientists, the media, and the public (12) . Because of these tasks, it is important for geologists to have a wide knowledge of these different subjects. Besides these subjects, there are some things that every geologist should know. Most of these things are laws and rules about how the Earth is made up and how it works.

I am a geology major with a focus on glaciology and Geomicrobiology. My area of focus revolves around glacial environments and the reactions between them and their constituents (primarily microbial bacteria). I aim to become a research professor focusing on Geomicrobiology at a university after getting a masters and PhD in glaciology/Geomicrobiology. My interests relate to the geospatial sciences in both micro and macro scale as thinking spatially is imperative when relating organisms with their environment. GIS and remote sensing are used for mapping and measuring multiple aspects of ice sheets/ glaciers.
I am applying to the MSc degree program in Geology at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, starting in winter 2014. My previous education and work experience as an exploration geologist make me a good candidate for this program. I have a strong research interest in understanding different Earth’s Lithosphere and plate boundary processes in relation to petrogenesis, mechanisms of rock deformation and metamorphism, and dynamics of crustal fluid migration during these deformation events through a combination of field-based, experimental and theoretical methods; with emphasis to better define and understand the architecture of fertile metallurgic districts. My future intent is to become an academia based consultant – structural geologist, in the mineral exploration industry. I found this programme appealing, as I believe that it can provide me with the necessary knowledge and competence to deal with the technical and theoretical shortcomings that are confronting me by offering a balanced coursework in deformation and transformation of rocks, tectonics, geochronology, ore geology, computer modeling and mathematical geology.
He has published or co-published several peer –reviewed work and has participated in several field exercises. In other words, Dr. Anderson is a qualified individual to be presenting information about the Earth’s climate. Works Cited Anderson, Dr. David and Dr. Carrie Morrill and Dr. Eugene Wahl.

It will address a variety of regional elements, such as climate, soil, vegetation, hydrology, geomorphology, and geology. A variety of sites located on the Canadian Shield, the zone of thick glacial deposits to the south, and the transition between them will be the focus of the report. It is supplemented with previous research on the region. September 8, 1999, day one of the field study involved an area of largely granite bedrock that is part of the Canadian Shield and is the most northern point of study (see Map 2). September 9, 1999, day two, involved three main areas of study: the Bridgenorth esker (Map 3), Mark S. Burnham Park (Map 4), and the Rice Lake drumlin (Map 6).
Visitors can also purchase copies of NHC publications off the website (NHC, 2011). Another core program at the NHC is research. The Center engages students in research activities to give them hands-on training in disaster and social science research and allows them to participation the multidisciplinary projects undertaken by the renown staff. Kathleen Tierney, NHC Director, and Dennis S. Mileti, Senior Research Scientist, are at the helm of the Center and both have published extensively on various aspects of disaster management prior to, and during their tenure at NHC. Both have also been the lead authors of books published by the National Academy Press, funded by the National Science Foundation, which addressed “assessment of research on natural hazards” (Mileti, 1999).
F.J. Jacka said, ”Through the early influence of Professor Archibald Liversidge, Mawson became a pioneer in the chemical aspects of geology and geochemistry (Jacka par 3).“ Archibald Liversidge was a mentor to Sir Douglas Mawson and inspired him to explore. His college also helped him with deciding what he wanted to do with his life (Antarctica Par
Summary The objective of this study is to research how glaciers affected the North Dakota landscape in relation to photographs taken of North Dakota. In doing so one can come to understand the landscape that the citizens of North Dakota see everyday depending on what part of the state they are located. In doing research at the library and using educational internet sources the glacier that covered most of North Dakota some twenty thousand years ago affected the state in two different ways as the western side is part of the Great Plains region and eastern half is part of the Central lowland plains which have two different types of landscapes. This study will briefly touch on the eastern half of North Dakota as the main focus is on the western half. The results show that the landscape of North Dakota as we see it today was affected by glaciers.
Glaciers are in fact, “a source of paleoclimate data…” (Meier and Dyurgerov, 1980, p. 37). This paleoclimate data can give geologists information on the conditions that were present at the time of the glaciers birth, as well as the approximate age. This has an important role in the geologic time scale of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. These Glaciers played a role in the carving of the present day Rocky Mountains in Colorado, which will be the primary focus of this paper. In addition, glacial formations will be discussed to give the reader background information and the future of the Glaciers in Colorado will close this paper.
