This course delves into the key factors involved in ethical fieldwork: values, integrity, and perception, and how these affect not only fieldwork research, but also the geoscience community as a whole. Scott Foss, the course presenter provides a myriad of case studies to help students learn about many different facets of ethics in fieldwork practices including seeking landholder permission for access to field sites, to obtaining permits, to publishing research, and planning for the long-term storage and preservation of samples and collections.
