Conference Paper
Full-text available
If the geosciences demand to be taken more seriously and to play a greater role in political and societal decision-making, they must take on great responsibility. If we are to act ethically, we must define values against which decisions about ethical behavior can be made. These values are often summarized as shared geoethical values (see Peppoloni...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A new campus for geosciences will be built in the center of Munich, which will also house an innovative exhibition on geosciences, the Forum der Geowissenschaften. A team of scientists, curators and museum educators began planning the exhibition last year. Topics from all sub-fields of geoscience and geoscientific research are to be presented in an...
Book
Full-text available
This book aims to view and to understand Alexander von Humboldt from different perspectives and in varying disciplinary contexts. His contributions addressed numerous topics in the earth but also life sciences—spanning from geo-botany, climatology, paleontology, oceanography, mineralogy, resources, and hydrogeology to links between the environmenta...
Article
CORRESPONDENCE Destructive geoscientific sampling can have ethical repercussions. It can disrupt archives of Earth’s history (see R. Butler Nature Geosci. 8, 817–818; 2015) and the management of landscapes and geological formations that have local cultural significance (see Nature Geosci. 14, 537; 2021). ...
Article
Full-text available
CCS (carbon capture and storage) is an important issue within the context of climate-change mitigation options and has played a major role in the agendas of scientists, researchers, and engineers. While media representations of CCS in Germany from 2004 to 2014 demonstrated the significant mediatization of the topic, this cannot be ascribed to scien...
Article
Full-text available
When dealing with issues that are of high societal relevance, Earth sciences still face a lack of acceptance, which is partly rooted in insufficient communication strategies on the individual and local community level. To increase the efficiency of communication routines, science has to transform its outreach concepts to become more aware of indivi...
Article
Der Einsatz von Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) revolutioniert die Beobachtung umweltrelevanter Faktoren. Sie ermöglichen die Vermessung und Kartierung relativ großer, oft schwierig oder gänzlich unzugänglicher Flächen mit hoher räumlicher Auflösung zu einem selbstbestimmten Zeitpunkt, mit überschaubarem Zeitaufwand im Feld und mit unterschiedlichste...

CCS is an important issue that has played a major role in the agenda of scientists, researchers, and engineers. While the media representations of CCS in Germany from 2004 to 2014 showed significant characteristics of a medialization of the topic, this cannot be ascribed to science. Instead, CCS media coverage in Germany was dominated by other stak...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Over the last decades the public debate about climate change, sustainability, and other global environmental issues was focused solely on perspectives from the Earth sciences, on economic demands and societal challenges. Some scholars see the working programme for climate research of the EU as an example, which seems to be “characterized by its exc...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Teaching and Learning material for school and out-of-school educational environments such as museums, school-labs, geo-parks and others is crucial to implement Earth and Space science issues in modern science classes. To reach the primary audience, which consists not only of children and pupils but has to target teaching professionals from schools...
Book
Politische Entscheidungsfindung beruht auf einem konstruktiv geführten Diskurs. Dieser wird in besonderem Masse durch den Journalismus geprägt, denn er kommuniziert neuste wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse und Technologien in die Öffentlichkeit. Die hier vorgestellte Studie betrachtet am Beispiel der Geologischen Speicherung von Kohlenstoffdioxid (CCS...
Chapter
Uncertainty is supposed to be the most underrated element of science communication. While being a crucial part of scientific research, uncertainty is perceived by the recipients of science communication as unwanted and prone to create mistakes and malfunction in everyday life. Nevertheless, uncertainty can and should play a significant role in scie...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In Germany, diverse activities have been developed over the last couple of years to make Geosciences more visible and support teachers for interdisciplinary teaching Geosciences in class room. This is important, because Geosciences are not an obligatory classroom topic in Germany and geo-related topics are taught primarily under a social science pe...
Chapter
You could say Earth makes itself at home in any museum. Whether it is an art gallery, a technology exhibition, or a national park visitor center—Earth science interpretation not only is possible but sometimes even more successful in unexpected locations.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In Germany, Earth Sciences are not an obligatory classroom topic. They are underrepresented compared to other natural sciences curricula, although geosciences are highly applicable to implement interdisciplinary exercises in the classroom. Thus, the crucial role of Earth Sciences for the modern, globalized society is not fully accommodated. One imp...
Conference Paper
“Museums provide opportunities for the appreciation, understanding and management of the natural and cultural heritage” … “Museums have an important duty to develop their educational role and attract wider audiences from the community, locality, or group they serve. In¬teraction with the constituent community and promotion of their heritage is an i...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Geosciences are not an obligatory classroom topic in Germany. Furthermore, they are underrepresented compared to other natural sciences curricula, although geosciences are highly applicable to implement interdisciplinary exercises in the classroom. One important strategy to attract future geoscientists in the classroom and share the passion for sci...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The elements of a successful exhibition, milestones in the exhibition planning process as well as ideas and recommendations to make your exhibition even more exciting, will be discussed. Best practice examples from ten years of experience with Earth sciences exhibitions will provide useful information for your exhibition project. Over the last year...
Article
The induced polarization (IP) method was developed originally for ore exploration. The transition from electronic to electrolytic conduction causes strong polarization effects in ores. However, other porous materials also exhibit polarization effects. They are caused by electrochemical processes at the internal interface between the pore fluid and...

Geoethics is a dynamically evolving concept framing various kinds of ethical aspects of Geoscience activities. As an expression of critical thinking and taking responsibility, Geoethics is fundamental to all kinds of Geoscience subdisciplines, however raising different types of questions and problems depending on the specific context. Many of these are intimately linked to specialties of our discipline, e.g. its historically male-dominated character as well as a strong focus on field work. With this session we aim to provide a platform for current works featuring critical analysis of 1) geoscience history and its implications, 2) intra-scientific issues such as gender inequalities or racism, 3) working methods and their implications for the environment, research objects and local communities, 4) geoscientists' work at the interface to society, politics and other stakeholders including geocommunication and geoeducation. We encourage you to submit your work to our session even if your specific topic is not covered above, but has a geoethical dimension.
