Geologist I am
By Dr. Mohamed El Gazzar
Geology is a profession dealing mainly with Earth and the nature. Due to such fact, it is a direct contact with life including Mankind.
The term "Professional Geologist" means a "Field Geologist" working on natural resources for exploitation and development. For this reason, Professional Geologist has a great chance to deal with all kind of life.
If you ask the professional Geologist to write about his career or background, he will have two sides of the story. The first side will be concerned with his career and experience and career in the field of Geology. The second will concentrate on the relation of Geology and life in each particular area from his point of view.
Generally speaking and since the professional Geologist normally deals with earth and what is beneath it and its nature, he can easily appreciate what is going on around him without panic!
However, he always watch the behavior of others regardless their profession or background, this doesn't mean that he has no fear, on the contrary his fear is by far ahead of the others, as he can predict the consequences! of any mother-nature sudden acts.
