The geosciences are at a crossroads as a scientific enterprise with society increasingly relying on solutions to a myriad of issues which the geosciences can help address – including climate change impact mitigation, raw materials, new ways of addressing energy needs, and management of our water resources.  At the same time, technology and the structure of Western economies are advancing at a breakneck pace, which when coupled with the new societal demands is making for a geoscience enterprise that looks little like that of the 20th and early 21st centuries.  This webinar will explore the state of geoscience employment and education and look at the trends that are likely to form the geoscience profession for the rest of the century.
