Mankind is, today, facing many challenges – natural disasters like earth quakes and tsunamis, dwindling energy and mineral resources, changing climates, water shortages, all of which are directly related to Earth Sciences. In such times, it is important that we understand the critical link between the earth, its resources and mankind.
The Geo-week 2017 celebrated in conjunction with the Earth Science week is the first of the series of activities to raise such awareness of the close relationship between Earth and mankind. The major focus is on enlightening the common man at large about the earth, and the close interplay between man, natural resources and the Earth comprising of the Geosphere (earth), Hydrosphere (water), Atmosphere (air), and Biosphere (life).
The various activities to be conducted during this year’s Geo-Week are listed below:
