1. Introduction

14% of survey complete.

Thanks for choosing to complete this survey. This is a project of the "Communicating Environmental Geoscience" working group of the International Union of Geological Sciences Commission "Geoscience for Environmental Management". The objective of the survey is to determine attitudes of environmental geoscientists towards communication and public engagement, as a compliment to similar surveys of scientists in general. Previous surveys have been country-specific, so the aim is to make this survey as international in scope as possible; a Spanish language version is on-line at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=yvNigB6HK8fwZ4umjODNzQ_3d_3d, and we're looking for volunteers to translate into other languages. We hope to publish the results of the survey in a refereed paper. We believe the results will be of interest to many working in environmental geoscience.

All personal information collected in this survey will be kept strictly confidential, and any reports of results from the survey will not identify any individual respondent.

There are 39 questions, most of which require only short answers, but there is also the opportunity to provide more extended answers if you choose. The survey should take 20-30 minutes to complete.

Any questions or concerns should be directed to the chair of the working group, Dave Liverman (dliverman@gov.nl.ca)
