||Precision Agriculture Technicians
- Use geospatial technology to develop soil sampling grids or identify sampling sites for testing characteristics such as nitrogen, phosphorus, or potassium content, pH, or micronutrients.
- Identify spatial coordinates, using remote sensing and Global Positioning System (GPS) data.
- Identify areas in need of pesticide treatment by analyzing geospatial data to determine insect movement and damage patterns.
||Environmental Science and Protection Technicians, Including Health
- Collect samples of gases, soils, water, industrial wastewater, or asbestos products to conduct tests on pollutant levels or identify sources of pollution.
- Perform statistical analysis of environmental data.
- Study public water supply issues, including flood and drought risks, water quality, wastewater, and impacts on wetland habitats.
- Collect and analyze water samples as part of field investigations or to validate data from automatic monitors.
- Analyze ecological data about the impact of pollution, erosion, floods, and other environmental problems on bodies of water.
- Collect water and soil samples to test for physical, chemical, or biological properties, such as pH, oxygen level, temperature, and pollution.
||Nuclear Monitoring Technicians
- Collect samples of air, water, gases, or solids to determine radioactivity levels of contamination.
- Analyze samples, such as air or water samples, for contaminants or other elements.
||Atmospheric and Space Scientists
- Gather data from sources such as surface or upper air stations, satellites, weather bureaus, or radar for use in meteorological reports or forecasts.
- Collect air samples from planes or ships over land or sea to study atmospheric composition.
||Geological Technicians, Except Hydrologic Technicians
- Collect data on underground areas, such as reservoirs, that could be used in carbon sequestration operations.
||Geoscientists, Except Hydrologists and Geographers
- Identify risks for natural disasters, such as mudslides, earthquakes, or volcanic eruptions.
||Remote Sensing Technicians
- Collect remote sensing data for forest or carbon tracking activities involved in assessing the impact of environmental change.
||Remote Sensing Scientists and Technologists
- Collect supporting data, such as climatic or field survey data, to corroborate remote sensing data analyses.
||Forest and Conservation Technicians
- Install gauges, stream flow recorders, and soil moisture measuring instruments, and collect and record data from them to assist with watershed analysis.
- Compile or interpret biodata to determine extent or type of wetlands or to aid in program formulation.
- Collect and analyze biological data about relationships among and between organisms and their environment.
- Collect and analyze data to compare the environmental implications of economic policy or practice alternatives.
- Collect air, water, gas or solid samples for testing to determine radioactivity levels or to ensure appropriate radioactive containment.
- Perform environmentally extended input-output (EE I-O) analyses.
