What Does a Professional Geologist (PG) Do series

Each download is intended to provide a short explanation of the type of work a PG performs (either directly or as responsible charge) for specific industries. For example, many people do not realize the numerous steps involved to investigate potential contamination at a former industrial site (Brownfield) to make it safe for future use, or in the extent of environmental data collected prior to drilling a natural gas well site.  

These downloads provide an overview of work usually done for an industry and not an all-inclusive list of tasks. Additional information and/or geologic work may be needed to address site-specific issues.
