New technologies and international training in geoscience as3

382 views

Published on

In the 21st Century Earth continues to be subjected to an indiscriminate exploitation and natural disasters occur where people live in conflict with the environment. Often the reason of the exposure of the population to the natural hazards is consequences of poor spatial planning that fail in accounting properly for hazards and risks drivers, triggering factors and effects. Without any doubt land planning and risk management will be future area of work for geoscientist worldwide and improving this skill requires a global approach. This international vision can be used not only to do business "selling knowledge", but also to simultaneously upgrade skill into the local system especially in poor areas of the world which are the most exposed to environmental risks. Geoscientists would be experts in holistic vision of land and its processes and they could support society by suggesting solution. To achieve these important objectives for future, early career geoscientists can take advantage of new technologies that are increasing the level of environmental knowledge, like development of very high resolution satellite imagery, spreading of GIS software and new geothematic methodologies. In Italy national congress of Young Section of Italian Geological Society, held in Neaples in 2010, handled this problem focusing on the difference of skills between academic offer and professional request. So it is very important that international education opportunity will be offered, like summer school grant or training period in company or university worldwide.

  9. 9. Geologist future land&risk manager? Land planning and risk management (!!!multirisk!!!) new business Integration of different tools GIS, RS, Numerical modeling and different background geology, environmental science, engeneering Ciro Manzo – yesnetworkitaly@gmail.com 9
  10. 10. Geologist future land&risk manager?© Dr. Ciro Manzo – manzo7@unisi.it Workflow of Damage and Risk assessment in flooding area Ciro Manzo – yesnetworkitaly@gmail.com 10
  11. 11. Italy & Geology  Italy due to its distinctive geological setting is for geologists a interesting area.  in this section in a range of few hundred kilometers there are a series of hazards from flood to landslide, to earthquake, volcanoe s, tsunamis…Ciro Manzo – yesnetworkitaly@gmail.com 11
  12. 12. Italian situation It would be basic have geologists working always and everywhere But there is too few awareness of who is a geologist and what his fields of work are! Ciro Manzo – yesnetworkitaly@gmail.com 12
  13. 13. No country for Young & geologists? Lots of early career geoscientist are looking out the window on the job opportunity landscape But… Lots of jobs are still unavailable! N. of Italian Annual Available work geologists graduated places per annum 15369 619 316Source: CRESME processing on European Federation of Geologists, National Council ofGeologists, Education and University Minestry (MIUR), Almalaurea (2007) Ciro Manzo – yesnetworkitaly@gmail.com 13
  14. 14. In Italy…Our knowledges are used by policy makers like a bulb. It turns on when a disaster happen and turns off when emergency ends. Vajont disaster (1963) Genua flood (2011) Emilia Romagna’s earthquake (2012) Ciro Manzo – yesnetworkitaly@gmail.com 14
  15. 15. Not all is so dark Despite lack of founding italian researcher continue to develop new techniques and ideas, i.e.: Courtesy of Dr. Di Giovanni - © all rights reserved to Amon-X s.r.l. Ciro Manzo – yesnetworkitaly@gmail.com 15
  16. 16. Not all is so darkCosmo Sky-med radar system is one of the last advancement initalian spatial technologies and offer a worldwide opportunityof research! Study displacement on the ground (subsidence, earthquake) Fast response in disaster situation (flooding, earthquake) Study of soil moisture Study of marine current Ciro Manzo – yesnetworkitaly@gmail.com 16
  17. 17. What are young geologists doing? Italian Geological Society – Youg Section from 2004 is active in spreading geological culture and networking people  Congresses, Workshops, Forums  First Sino-Italian Earth-Sciences Forum (powerd by YES and SGI)17th ~ 23th of September 2012 Ciro Manzo – yesnetworkitaly@gmail.com 17
  18. 18. Not all is so dark First Sino-Italian Earth Scientists Forum 2012.Italian Geological Society (SGI) and ChineseGeological Societies have organized a forumduring 86th National Congress of SGI.

  21. 21. Ideas for the future… More awareness -> more attention by policy makersWe should work on different way:Increase awareness of geological issue in the society - offering free workshop in the primary, secondary and high schools! (or organizing school-trips in interesting geological sites, and doing geoactivities – create our own volcano) - Making public discussion about local project of development or local risk(Landfill site, infrastructure project, Volcanic risk!, Water, etc…) Ciro Manzo – yesnetworkitaly@gmail.com 21
  22. 22. Ideas for the future…Increase education and job training Increase educational period in foreign Universirty (Erasmus, Socrates, etc…) Internship contract University and Company agreement Course for professional qualifying examination Social Webinar (gis or new geological softwares…) Spread by site job opportunity Creation of database of curriculum vitae for young geologists Ciro Manzo – yesnetworkitaly@gmail.com 22
  23. 23. International TrainingInternational summer schools could be a way to spreadknowledge, where teachers and students coming fromdifferent countries get in contact with different method ofteach and research  strong multidisciplinary approach;  use ICT tools and services,  thereby contributing to the creation of a sustainable learning community in the subject area concerned. (this is true expecially for developing countries) Ciro Manzo – yesnetworkitaly@gmail.com 23
