This three day workshop will address the role of humankind and natural geological processes as factors causing environmental changes over periods of 100 years or less.

Blue Mountains Valley, New South Wales, Australia The workshop will be of interest to national parks managers, ecologists, biologists, environmental scientists, geologists, and environmental and geo-sciences professionals with an interest in environmental management. It will have a strong focus on:

  • National Parks monitoring and arid zone indicators.
  • Groundwater quality and monitoring.
  • Seismicity, crustal movements, and active fault zones.
  • Coastal zones and shoreline protection.

The workshop will be held from 24-26 November 2003 at Geoscience Australia, Symonston, ACT.

The geoindicator concept is a new approach to the indicators of landscape change and aims to assist in environmental research, monitoring, and reporting. It is being advanced by an international working group, called the Geoindicators Initiative that was set up by the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS). Geoscience Australia is a member of the Initiative.
