The success of the first Geo-Environment conference held in Segovia, Spain (2004), prompted the Organisers to reconvene the meeting in Rhodes in 2006. Like the first meeting, this conference aims to study the role of geosciences in environmental management. The geosciences understanding of natural systems and their process is of fundamental relevance for proper use of the land.

The study of the Earth’s materials and dynamic processes is essential for different fields of application, and to face varying environmental problems, such as air, soil and water pollution, soil erosion, waste disposal, water quality, building materials and foundations, and many others. Understanding geologic processes is also essential to other fields of study, such as engineering, environmental management, land preservation and restoration, urban environment, land and ecosystem inventories and scenery assessments and landscaping.

The objective of the meeting is to provide a forum for discussion of these opportunities and problems among researchers, engineers, planners, decision-makers, consultants and other professionals interested in the contribution of geosciences and geo-information to environmental management, land preservation, remediation and sustainable development.
