Re: I have lots of questions..
New to the forum (well, taken a while to post anyway) so I'll do a thread dredge and basic introduction. After leaving my previous field (pharmacy) I am now a Geology student at JCU in Aus and had a couple of basic crystal ball questions.
First, the importance of hydrology for your average geologist, specifically with regards to exploration which is where I'd imagine myself heading first (heh, that's about as much as I can narrow it down at the moment!). Being this early in the course, it's hard to say yet where my particular interests lie and whether I'd prefer minerals or consider heading down the oil and gas pathway. For the latter, I'm guessing a hydrology subject might be slightly useful...
The problem is we have limited electives (I'm doing a graduate entry bachelor) and the other subject that I have currently selected (though can swap) is a geomorphology subject (with a focus on Australia) which just seems that bit more interesting.
That said, there seems enough basic geomorph in most of the other subjects and I don't want to disadvantage myself by omitting the hydrology subject, especially considering what one of the other posters said re. expanding roles for a hydrology bent.
Any input/discussion would be appreciated!
