The current issue of Geoscientist has an article about Spains ‘hugely successful” field-based outreach programme held in May 2015,
The article aimed to bring geology to the general public. Let alone the general public arena, there has been ongoing discussion in the geological media about the virtues, or not, of bringing geology back to the career professionals. In our view the old adage that ‘the best geologist is he who has seen the most rocks’ holds true; those who spend their working lives forever behind a screen can lose touch with the scale and nature of the geology they are interpreting from digital data. So that’s why we believe in Training !
