What are the scientists who study components of soil called?
I think that they are called geologists geologists
Pedologists study soil. They used to study it only in the context of soil formation and geologic history, but in recent years agronomists (scientists who study crop production) have come to recognize that there are very complex issues surrounding the interaction of soil structure, fungi, bacteria, arthopodic life, and the crop plants. So they have "joined forces," so to speak, to study how all these things work together.
Most people, including soil scientists, call them 'soil scientist.' There are also two terms that exist that I rarely hear used: edaphologist - This is a soil scientist who studies soil as a medium for plant growth. This includes specialists in soil fertility and soil management, for example. pedologist - This is a soil scientist who studies soil as a natural body. They study soil formation, development, change over time, how the soil reacts to…
This is called a soil profile, which is made of one or more soil horizons. Each layer is unique to each soil type. Each horizon can range in depth from a few centimeters to several meters. Soil scientists observe and describe the profiles and horizons to classify and interpret the soil for various uses.
soilology (heh heh!) Pedology (from Greek: πέδον, pedon, "soil"; and λόγος, logos, "study") is the study of soils in their natural environment. It is one of two main branches of soil science, the other being edaphology. Pedology deals with pedogenesis, soil morphology, and soil classification, while edaphology studies the way soils influence plants, fungi, and other living things.
Well, study of soil is pedology, and rocks is petrology. Geology is the study of the earth's processes, so that would include rocks and soil, but also tectonic plates and volcanoes and stuff. I don't know if anything is dedicated to just soil and rocks. I'm pretty sure pedology has some classification by content, which would include stones, but I'm not really sure. Hope that was helpful.
They study a range of issues related to the environment. Climate gases, what percentage each gas occupies in the atmosphere, temperature changes and how that affects the environment, soil runoff, marine ecosystems, the inter-relationships between ecosystems. The effect of ocean currents on land temperatures, the effect of land run off on marine ecosystems. There are many different areas that can be called environmental science.
