Resources and Risks in the Earth System

The last decade has seen a growing demand for energy and mineral resources due to rapidly evolving economies and growing population. In this context, discovery of new resources and improved management of known resources have become two of the most important and challenging tasks for earth scientists. At the same time an awareness of environmental risks and climate change has promoted new developments in storage technologies; nevertheless many questions regarding utilization of the subsurface remain unsolved at the moment. Another challenge related to land use and civilization is the protection of mankind and minimization of physical damage with respect to natural disasters. Geology has to offer answers to these challenging questions of future energy and mineral resources as well as the risk management and environmental protection. The Geo2008 conference will be devoted to these topics
