Dolphin, Glenn; Benoit, Wendy; Burylo, Jessica; Hurst, Emily; Petryshen, Wyatt; Wiebe, Simon – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
Many of the current issues facing humans are geologic in nature. Whether the issue is mitigating the impact of geologic hazards, reducing air and water pollution, managing the energy of mineral resources, or minimizing the impact of anthropogenic global climate change, we require a geosciences-literate population. This is crucial to developing…
