Geology is part of a historical science that investigates what the planet Earth was like at different times in the past, but more so a specific science that concerns itself with the origin, characterization, exploration, exploitation and responsible management of Earth materials. A geologist can therefore be regarded as an essential role player within the global community who serves it with advice as to the availability, quantity and usefulness of Earth materials.
