This website has a brief description of what Coastal Geologists do and what they look for
What are Coastal Geologists?
A Coastal Geologist is someone who watches the effects of humans on the coastlines and who protect coastline wildlife. They also watch sea levels, sediment deposits, erosion, flooding and other natural events.
Where do they work?
Coastal Geologists work either outside at the coastlines or inside an office focusing on solutions for coastal problems. (Many times both.)
Why are they necessary?
- They prevent erosion.
- They protect buildings and homes along the shores.
- They deal with pollution and waste disposal.
Pros and Cons
Can work outside and be interactive.
- Can use creative ways to solve problems.
You need a masters degree and your starting pay is only around $49,000- $66,000.
- There is little room for error because they can deal with the safety of people and coastline wildlife.
