Furthering Physics education inline with current job

  1. Jun 15, 2015 #1
    Hi, I have a Degree in Pure Physics and I was recruited last year as a cadet hydrographer for a mine. Hydrography is the branch of applied sciences which deals with the measurement and description of the physical features of terrestrial water catchments, as well as with the prediction of their change over time.

    I would very much like to fuse my physics education with another area of study in order to develop my knowledge. Any ideas where I should go from here?

    Do you do anything to do with motion of ground water through soil and rock? You could study the transport of contaminants. This could take you to places where things were buried in the past when standards were lax. Or where people didn't follow the rules. Or where people are doing things like fracking that are reported to contaminate ground water.
