Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Seismologist Seismologistsare scientiststhat specialize in geophysics orother relatedfields Since seismic waves move throughout the earth, the job location varies, and vary adaptable to location (geology, etc) I selected this profession to tie into my paper about the prediction of volcano eruptions because Earthquakes were major indicators of volcanoes and an important profession to use seismic activityto later predict volcanic activity. A seismologist is a scientist who studies earthquakes and seismic waves Different degrees for this profession include: a bachelor's degree in geophysics, and Specialization can be done at the Graduate level after a pre-existingdegree in Earth Sciences Average salary: $91,920(*2013) How did you get interested in Seismology?"It was really a happy accident...looking for a physicist.. and as a result i joined his staff in 1927." Charles F. Richter He earned his degree in physics in 1920 from Stanford University before earning his Ph.Din theoretical physics from the Cal Tech in 1928 Richter was so dedicated to seismology that helearned how to speak Russian, Italian, French, Spanish, German, and Japanese in order to study and readscientific papers from other countries Richter is accredited with creating the Richter scale along with another person, the scale used to measure an earthquake Citations Charles F.
