Speaker: Maria Angela Capello, Consultant
Geophysics is enhanced if the value it adds to society, economic systems, and the environment is assessed, understood, and communicated. One way to position geophysics and geophysicists as value creators is to map applications of geophysics and areas of geophysical practice to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations.
The Geophysical Sustainability Atlas maps daily activities of geophysicists into the 17 SDGs, providing a framework for understanding the tremendous potential all stakeholders in geophysics have for overcoming societal, economic, and environmental challenges in pursuit of noble and high pursuits.
The presentation will showcase how this Atlas was developed, the different facets of the mapping performed, and how it can be used as an inspirational and practical platform to visualize current and future opportunities related to the sustainability of our world and our profession.
