Geologists are mainly involved in the energy industry through oil, gas and nuclear power companies. Oil and gas companies employ geologists and geophysicists to find more resources through exploration. Seismic bathymetry and software modelling are some ways of finding oil and gas reservoirs. Geologists working in nuclear power tend to be structural or engineering geologists.
