If so, the study of geology may just be for you.

Geology is a science that seeks to understand Earth as a dynamic system. A discovery that aims to understand how the Earth works - its materials, landforms, processes and history. It branches into many aspects of the physical planet, such as earthquakes, volcanoes, mudslides and flooding. A course in geology allows you to use your knowledge of the Earth's surface to discover resources of value.
