1. Digital Coalescence and Consolidated Geoconservation Outcomes: A Case Study Using ArcGIS Mobile Applications at Tasmanian Coastal Geoconservation Sites

Jake Crisp; Joanna Ellison; Andrew Fischer

Volume 5, Issue 1 , June 2022, Pages 1-28

http://dx.doi.org/10.30486/gcr.2021.1920096.1079

Abstract
  Geoconservation outcomes are hindered by highly subjective and conflicting criteria, varying assessment objectives, disparities in geoconservation strategy steps and the inadequate capturing and representation of geological data in dynamically changing inventories. Review shows that geoconservation outcomes ...  Read More

2. Ecosystem Services Assessment of Geosites in the Seridó Aspiring UNESCO Geopark Area, Northeast Brazil

Matheus Lisboa Nobre da Silva; Kátia Leite Mansur; Marcos Antonio Leite do Nascimento

Volume 5, Issue 1 , June 2022, Pages 29-46

http://dx.doi.org/10.30486/gcr.2021.1920882.1080

Abstract
  Over the course of the Earth’s history, the development of geodiversity has allowed the establishment of biotic diversity on our planet. Just as biodiversity is the subject of studies and protection actions, abiotic nature also needs to be conserved and used more sustainably. One of the ways to ...  Read More

3. Proposal for Geoconservation of Two New Coastal Geosites for the Sabana-Camagüey Archipelago, Cuba: Los Caimanes and El Jato Lagoons

Roberto González-De Zayas; Felipe Matos Pupo

Volume 5, Issue 1 , June 2022, Pages 47-58

http://dx.doi.org/10.30486/gcr.2021.1931016.1094

Abstract
  The designation of geological sites in Cuba is relatively new. During the early years of the 21st century some sites were proposed, but only in the province of Pinar del Rio have geosites been officially approved. Here we propose two further geosites, one at Cayo Sabinal (Camagüey Province) and ...  Read More

4. Geoheritage and Geodiversity Assessment Framework for Practical Application to Geoconservation of the Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand

Vladyslav Zakharovskyi; Karoly Nemeth; Ilmars Gravis; Chris Twemlow

Volume 5, Issue 1 , June 2022, Pages 59-88

http://dx.doi.org/10.30486/gcr.2022.1935500.1097

Abstract
  Life on Earth is influenced by abiotic nature, providing resources and shelter for living beings on the Earth. Hence, this part of nature should be well treated and protected. Study of geodiversity can facilitate education about abiotic nature and processes occurring around us. Geodiversity as a discipline ...  Read More

5. The History of Geopark Development in Australia, A New Way Forward

Angus Muir Robinson

Volume 5, Issue 1 , June 2022, Pages 89-107

http://dx.doi.org/10.30486/gcr.2021.1935126.1096

Abstract
  Geoparks in Australia have had a complex recent history. Following the demise of the former Kanawinka UNESCO Geopark in 2012, two potential UNESCO Global Geopark projects supported by local government agencies and embracing large areas were initiated in other Australian regions in 2016. These were for ...  Read More

6. Omnidiversity Consolidation of Conservation Assessment: A Case Study of Tasmanian Coastal Geoconservation Sites

Jake RA Crisp; Joanna C Ellison; Andrew Fischer

Volume 5, Issue 1 , June 2022, Pages 108-134

http://dx.doi.org/10.30486/gcr.2022.1947195.1099

Abstract
  The exclusivity of biodiversity and geodiversity assessment hinders conservation outcomes, evidenced by the prioritization of biodiversity in conservation literature, and lagging developmental state in geodiversity assessment approaches, geoconservation strategies and outcomes. This study develops a ...  Read More

7. Coring is not boring! – What should, could and has been be done to celebrate the borehole core.

Phillip James Murphy

Volume 5, Issue 1 , June 2022, Pages 135-141

http://dx.doi.org/10.30486/gcr.2022.1951018.1101

Abstract
  The importance of the borehole core in aiding our understanding of the subsurface is generally underappreciated outside the geoscience world. The use of boreholes to access geological resources has a long history and the study of recovered core samples is still pivotal in modern geological and palaeoclimate ...  Read More
