The Geological Society of London has just issued a new book, edited my
myself, Brian Marker and Chris Pereira entitled "Communicating
Geoscience". More details available at the Geolsoc bookshop -
See "New publications".
This is the major output to date of the IUGS-GEM working Group
"Communicating Environmental Geoscience"
Description of book follows:
This collection of papers addresses the issues surrounding
environmental geoscience. Geologists whose research deals with
problems such as landslides, floods, earthquakes and other natural
that affect people's health and safety, must communicate their results
effectively to the public, policy makers and politicians. There are many
examples of geological studies being ignored in policy and public
this is in due in part to geoscientists being poor communicators. These
papers document issues in communicating environmental geoscience,
successes and failures through case studies, describe ways in which
geoscientists can improve communication skills and show how new
make communication more effective.
