Statement of Values

The San Diego Geological Society recognizes the importance of geology and related fields. The United Nations declared geology "most important" to solving environmental problems. The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) concluded that, in most cases, geology "...is the most important requirement to solving the problem....

UNESCAP attributes the remarkable success of geo-scientists in solving even the most "perplexing issues" of human health, safety and the environment to their ability as professionals "...to think in terms of long time intervals, to visualize changes in the environment that are a result of natural or anthropogenic processes and to put all of this into a three-dimensional and time perspective. No other professional scientist or engineer has been trained to do that...."
