What are the skills needed to be a geologist?

First and foremost, geologists need a degree in Geology or Geoscience. They should also be comfortable with getting their hands dirty – literally – to collect samples and specimens from sites of interest. Other important geologist skills include an aptitude in data analysis and research, as well as savviness in using technological tools, both software and devices (e.g. gravimeters).

  • Survey sites and create logs (e.g. borehole) and maps using GIS
  • Gather and analyze geological data
  • Coordinate research programs
  • Examine the composition of samples and specimens
  • Measure and test fossils, rocks, soil, ores and other material with the proper instruments (e.g. X-rays)
  • Write reports on findings
  • Conduct quality control on the suitability of material (e.g. metals for construction purposes) and inspect projects
  • Study sites for developments, formations, hazards, and composition
  • Investigate and evaluate natural resource deposits (e.g. oil)
  • Consult on various geology-related issues like waste management, resource management, gas extraction techniques and more
  • Ensure environmental and other regulations are met in construction and production projects (e.g. oil wells)

Requirements and skills

  • Proven experience as a geologist
  • Experience with various geological techniques like mining, boring and numerical modeling
  • Experience using geology software (e.g. ArcGIS, Rockware) and other data and modeling tools (e.g. Adobe Illustrator, GoCAD)
  • Familiarity with environmental regulations
  • Good knowledge of the attributes of ores, soil, minerals and other materials
  • Ability to handle and analyze data and 3D models
  • An analytical mind
  • Attention to detail
