Ethics on the Edge: Scientific Integrity and Geoethics in a Changing World
Leaders: Dr. Linda Gundersen, Ocean View Delaware, and Dr. David Mogk, Professor of Geology, Dept. of Earth Sciences, Montana State Univ.
Saturday September 24, 2016, 1-4 PM, Room 704/706 CCC
Explore the ethical and scientific integrity challenges in the geosciences today. Network and dialogue with your peers on issues of resource sustainability, hazard risk assessment, climate change, scientific integrity, open access, intellectual property, conflict of interest, sexual harassment, and gender and other biases. Learn the latest on ethical requirements and guidance from the Geological Society of America, American Geosciences Institute, the National Science Foundation, and the new report from the National Academy of Sciences, as well as the latest global perspectives on scientific integrity and the emerging field of geoethics. Discuss and learn strategies for identifying and resolving scientific integrity and geoethical challenges you may face in your career.

This workshop will provide an interactive forum to explore the principles and practice of scientific integrity and geoethics in the geosciences. We will introduce a number of principles related to scientific integrity followed by case studies to explore the topics in more detail. A comprehensive collection of resources on these topics can be found at the Teaching Geoethics Across the Geoscience Curriculum website.

- The scope of Geoethics: intersection of geoscience, philosophy, economics and sociology
- Geoethics consists of research and reflection on the values which underpin appropriate behaviours and practices, wherever human activities interact with the geosphere.
- Geoethics deals with the ethical, social and cultural implications of Earth Sciences education, research and practice, providing a point of intersection for Geosciences, Sociology, Philosophy and Economics.
- Geoethics represents an opportunity for Geoscientists to become more conscious of their social role and responsibilities in conducting their activity.
- Geoethics is a tool to influence the awareness of society regarding problems related to geo-resources and geo-environment.
