Aims and Scope: Environmental Geology

Environmental Earth Sciences is an international multidisciplinary journal concerned with all aspects of interaction between humans, natural resources, ecosystems, special climates or unique geographic zones, and the earth:

  • Water and soil contamination caused by waste management and disposal practices
  • Environmental problems associated with transportation by land, air, or water
  • Geological processes that may impact biosystems or humans
  • Man-made or naturally occurring geological or hydrological hazards
  • Environmental problems associated with the recovery of materials from the earth
  • Environmental problems caused by extraction of minerals, coal, and ores, as well as oil and gas, water and alternative energy sources
  • Environmental impacts of exploration and recultivation
  • Environmental impacts of hazardous materials
  • Management of environmental data and information in data banks and information systems
  • Dissemination of knowledge on techniques, methods, approaches and experiences to improve and remediate the environment

In pursuit of these topics, the geoscientific disciplines are invited to contribute their knowledge and experience.

Major disciplines include: hydrogeology, hydrochemistry, geochemistry, geophysics, engineering geology, remediation science, natural resources management, environmental climatology and biota, environmental geography, soil science and geomicrobiology.
