Special Issue Information
One of the main issues related to geoscientists’ activities and duties is that we should face, not only the conventional subjects related to Earth sciences, but also other, much more leading-edge and interdisciplinary topics. These include the multifaceted interactions with life (in a broad sense), considering Earth’s history and evolution, natural hazards and environmental and sustainability problems, and reflecting the wide scope and societal, educational, ethical, and cultural implications of the crosscutting character of the complex interactions between humans and nature. These goals and challenges match well with the principal question regarding how the Earth system will change in the future. This Special Issue attempts to contribute, from geosciences, to the development of the Future Earth Initiative, which was launched during the UN Rio+20. We strongly encourage you to participate, and invite you to submit your manuscripts, including general and specialized reviews and research articles.
Prof. Dr. Jesus Martinez-Frias
