Under the theme "Unearthing our Past and Future" the IGC will demonstrate the crucial role that geoscience plays in the quest for sustainable development and show how geoscience contributes directly to the future of its resource-based industries, land and water management and mitigation of geohazards.

Chair of the ANDRILL Science Committee Dr. Tim Naish will coordinate Antarctic and Arctic Geoscience Theme. This Theme will include Symposia on major developments in polar earth sciences and will also mark the centenary of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition led by Sir Douglas Mawson recognising the central scientific focus of the early Antarctic expeditions. Symposia are planned on marinebiogeochemistry, geological rocesses and human impacts in polar regions; Rodinia to Gondwana: development of the Southern supercontinent; and polar climate archives integrated with numerical modelling and their global significance.
You can learn more about this and other Themes please in the IGC Fourth Circular.
