Hi there! Love your blog. I was wondering if you knew anything on whether or not a geology degree could get you anywhere in the meteorology world? My school doesn't offer straight up meteorology or atmospheric sciences, but they do have geology. Just wondering, thank you!!

Hey there!

I’m really not to sure of how strongly both meteorology and geology intertwine. There should be some intertwining with research in development of valleys and canyons from rainwater flow and snow/ice melt; I imagine that somebody with a knowledge of this is working with NASA on researching what we’re growing to know about the history of Mars (which is freaking awesome). If you’re passionate about meteorology and that’s your main goal, I would consider enrolling in a school with that degree instead. Geology still rocks though ;P
