Science occupations for the Earth’s core

Science occupations for the Earth’s core

OCCUPATIONS TO ADDRESS THE SCIENCE OF THE EARTH IS NOT SOMETHING WHICH MANY ARTS STUDENTS HAVE BEEN ENCOURAGED TO CONSIDER WHEN SELECTING THEIR UNDERGRADUATE COURSES AT UNIVERSITY.

In fact, interviews by occupation within the sciences is not something which many professional broadcasters have had to regularly consider.

But science discussions should be a regular feature for many art students if they want to be able to take part in serious debate about climate change.

In undertaking a range of interviews for the History of Australian Geoscience oral history project in 2014 and 2015, I met a range of different earth scientists. Each person had their own particular viewpoint on their contribution to the Sciences and the health of the planet.

They each had terminology for scientific endeavours which criss-crossed the global debate on climate change and implications for long-term life on Earth.

They each worked hard during their interviews to impress upon this broadcaster how important science and research can be to the health of the planet.

If you are interested in certain science subjects, then scroll down these interviews to find one which will give you an opportunity to learn more about your favourite type of science.

Most of the interviews are available online via the National Library of Australia’s website. The interviews are free to listen to.
