Earth System Science

A wide range of multidisciplinary fields of research augment classical Earth Science today; geosphere-biospherecryosphere- atmosphere interactions are particularly important. The 33rd IGC programme highlights the need to promote interaction and integration of the Earth Sciences.
Hence the concept of this IGC as the Geoscience World Congress 2008.

The Geoscience World Congress 2008 spans the whole field of Earth Science, binding together classical geology with geophysics, geochemistry, and the biogeosciences. We accommodate the variety of topics that are the prime concern of the IUGS Commissions, the many other scientific bodies that traditionally meet at IGCs and those collaborating in the United Nations’ International Year of Planet Earth.
