Hi, currently I am 15 years old and going to take my gcses in 2020. I am hoping to study geography and environmental/earth sciences in college. My biggest hope is to study natural disasters (e.g earthquakes, tornadoes), and I was just wondering what is the name of these sorts of people that study them, and what qualifications/degrees would I need? Sorry if this didn't really make sense!

Go on the open uni and look through their geography courses as a rough idea and then get brochures from brick unis

There isn't a single job that studies all natural disasters, typically you'd need to specialise in volcanology, seismology, meteorology etc. It's possible to do a specialised undergraduate degree in natural hazards (e.g. at Chester, Edge Hill, Derby, Coventry), or you could do a degree in geography, earth science or geology (to keep your postgraduate and career options open in case your interests change) and then choose a specialist masters course in a subject like geophysical hazards, flood risk management, earthquake engineering, volcanology or disaster management
