Thats an open ended question LOL

I guess its whatever "floats your boat"
for me its primarily tectonics including seismology and volcanics
But I am a bit of a "jack of all trades, master at none" as I do enjoy many fields of geology

for others it may be petrology, or paleontology

Geology is just such a huge subject with so many sub and sub-sub sections that you can devote yourself to just one tiny section for a lifetime of study

Difficult question. I enjoy Paleontology, Geophysics, Volcanology, Seismology, etc... I'd highly recommend taking a course in geology if it's offered at your Uni, or school. Really interesting stuff. :wink:

Comparative planetology, since it enlarges an already fascinatinlgy large subject.
