DL Abstract

 

This talk examines the principles of common morality that underlie written ethics codes including the differences between statements of rules that must be complied with and aspirational statements, the procedure for determining if a violation of a rule is justified, and case histories of common ethical issues in geoscience practice. This talk is intended as an introduction to geoscience ethics.

Explorer Division Column DEG

 

The famous phrase “I a geologist” is one from a young man 29 years of age named Charles Darwin. After his introduction to geology at the age of 21 by Adam Sedgwick, Darwin would eventually embark on the famous voyage of the Beagle which lasted from 1831 to 1836.

Explorer President’s Column

 

I’m writing November’s President’s Column on day 19 after Hurricane Michael devasted the Panhandle communities in Bay County, Florida on Oct. 10, 2018. I was driving from the AAPG Eastern Section Meeting in Pittsburgh, Pa. to the California University of Pennsylvania for an AAPG Visiting Geoscientist lecture and pulled to the side of the road to watch the weather radar at 12:43 p.m. as the west side of the eye of a hurricane, two knots shy of a Category 5, passed over my hometown of Panama City.

As President John F. Kennedy famously said in his 1962 speech at Rice University in Houston, difficult challenges serve “to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills.” I am happy to report that the super basin concept I wrote about in my July column is working to focus energies and skills within AAPG.

Spheres of Influence Article

 

The Niagara falls were formed by a series of geological events following the Wisconsin glaciation, when the glaciers retreated and melt water formed what eventually became the Great Lakes. Water flowing from the Great Lakes gouged out the Niagara Escarpment.
