Environmental scientists and hydrologists
Description: Environmental scientists and geoscientists study the earth and humans' impact on it. Some search for oil, natural gas, minerals, and underground water. Others, such as oceanographers, study the world's oceans and coastal waters. All of these scientists play an important role in cleaning up the earth's environment, designing waste-disposal sites, and cleaning up polluted land and water.
