Inaugural newsletter on Military Geosciences

The International Association for Military Geosciences has released its inaugural newsletter.  In the announcement I received, associations Secretary, Drew Craig, says, "The International Association for Military Geosciences is a not-for-profit organization, administered by its members and represented by a Coordinating Committee. Membership in the Association is free and open to researchers and practitioners of military geology and geography and associated fields. Membership is open to all with no distinction of religion, nationality, gender or language."      [Photo credit, IAMG]

He encourages anyone with recommendations or suggestions for the group and this newsletter, to please get in touch at Drew Craig,

The 11th International Conference on Military Geosciences was held in June at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis. 

The primary theme for this event was: The Future of Military Geosciences: Scientific Capabilities, Global Security, and Sustainability.

Sub-themes included these and other topics:
  • International security: borders to natural resources
  • Sustainability: from military training areas to deployed settings
  • Coastal and marine environments: warfare to environmental impacts
  • Climate and conflict: military response to predictive climate change
  • 21st Century military hotspots: Future conflict - past warfare 
  • Beyond warfare: Pandemics to providing vital resources
