In this issue of Research Features magazine, we are excited to explore the world of Geoscience. And what a world it is! The researchers featured here are busy investigating some of the most extreme corners of our globe, from the ice-covered poles to deep sea vents.
The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is committed to supporting excellence in the Geosciences. Its President, Professor Jonathan Bamber, shares his vision for the Union with us and discusses how EGU fits into the wider community.
Encouraging the younger generation of geologists is a key aim of the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) and something close to the heart of Adam Heft, the Institute's President. He shares his views on this and why professional standards are so important.
Equally passionate, Dr James Johnson, CEO of Geoscience Australia, is keen to ensure that the organisation's vital work is appreciated by the citizens who benefit from it.
With articles ranging from the effects of climate change, investigating extreme weather and even to the search for extraterrestrial life, you'll be as fascinated as we were by these researchers' work.
We are committed to sharing the details of this research and once you've read more about it, we think you will be too. Dip in and get started.
