In one year I will graduate with an M.S. in the earth sciences having conducted research in field glaciology and having gotten a bachelor's in geology from a top-tier liberal arts college. I have to consider whether or not to apply to a Ph.D. program within the next couple of months. I am looking for advice on possible alternative careers outside of academia that would be open to a person with my background. I would like a career that is useful/meaningful and challenging (though not "intense") and ideally is not too volatile. Salary potential is of minimal importance.
