b.      Marine Geophysics
3.      Geomorphology
4.      Geodesy
5.      Oceanography

Some of the geoscientist's career is a consultant; mining industry; oil and gas industry; geotechnical field; as academics; and in the administration. A geoscientistgetting productive when he is 8 years since the beginning of learning in the lecture. In employment, the important thing is the soft skills, including how to communicate with others.
