What does a geologist really do with his or her time? As the general public, what we generally see is the result, a seemingly obvious answer. The geologist's job, however, is a complicated one that most people don't care to think about, but someone's got to do it. Otherwise you end with people living below sea level...oh wait...well, at least people don't live over sink holes or on fault lines...ignore that...they do make sure sure no one lives on the flanks of a volcano....okay...bad examples. But these problems are not caused by geologists not doing their jobs. It's because people don't listen to them when they do their job. And yet still they do it...probably for the pleasure in saying I told you so. The following are photographs of the typical geologist doing typically geology that typically no one notices.
