Geoscience is a remarkable and all-encompassing discipline.

We are lucky to work in a field with enormous breadth, which touches almost every part of our planet’s physical characteristics; from earthquakes to raindrops and from floods to fossils. Don’t believe me? I hope this issue of Unearthed will convince you otherwise.

Here at Seequent, we believe that geoscience has incredible power for good. Across the world, experts in geoscience are using their “geo” expertise – geological, geophysical, geotechnical, geostatistical, and geospatial (among others) to the benefit of our planet and the lives we live on it. And I’m proud to say we have many such people on our own team.

So we’ve dedicated this edition of Unearthed to looking at how geoscience is making the world safer, smarter
and more sustainable – sometimes in remarkable and unexpected ways.

Geoscience can hold the key to stopping Arctic ice sheets from melting, it can prevent long-dormant WWII bombs from exploding, it can help deliver cleaner, greener energy, it can bring fresh water to beleaguered refugees.

This edition’s expert contributors bring through their views on how the world is changing and how we can leverage geoscience for good across the globe. We hope you enjoy reading this edition. And to all who use their geoscience skills for good in your own way, thank you and we salute you!
