Geoethics

The scientific community, as well as our civic communities, must have trust that the conduct of scientists and the integrity of their scientific product, is above reproach. Many scientific communities are plagued with cheating and fraud. Scientists should recognize ethical dilemmas in the first instance, develop and plan strategies to responsibly participate in the profession, make ethically correct decisions. There is an evident need to develop an ethical framework for geosciences research and practices that can help geoscientists confronting ethical dilemmas and make them more aware of their responsibility in conducting their research.

Geoethics encompasses “the ethical, social and cultural implications of Earth Sciences research” particularly as these intersect human activities and stewardship of the planet. It aids us in recognizing ethical dilemmas, develop the strategies and skills needed to responsibly contribute to the profession (and to civic issues), gain experience in ethical decision-making, develop critical thinking skills, and connect geoscience to personal lives.
