'Geoscience Connections' Documentary

While we already informed you about the 'Geoscience Connections' project where short introduction and science videos of Early Career Researchers are showcased every week on YouTube in our older blog, we have more news! The project awarded by IUGG (International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics) to the joint IAGA-IASPEI proposal consists of a documentary and short videos showcasing the work done by the community of scientists that fall under the 8 associations of IUGG. And.... the documentary is out now on IAGA and IUGG Youtube channels!

Under the project, two videos are available- 'Earth Human Connections' and 'Geoscience Connections'.

'Earth Human Connections' is a short animated movie that shows the evolution of Earth through an analogy between humans and Earth. The timeline starts from the formation of our planet and across billions of years when humans became Earth’s inhabitants. On the one hand, the intelligent human brain allowed for the development of various brilliant technologies and a complex society. On the other hand, humans have participated in the uncontrolled exploitation of natural resources, and are thought to have caused many problems to other living beings on our planet. This movie also won the 'Audience Award' at the Braga Science Film Festival.

'Geoscience Connections' is a documentary that leads you through a fascinating journey through the Earth’s history, explained by eight early-career researchers who represent each international association of IUGG. The geoscientists help us to better understand Earth processes, bring us hope for the problems humanity faces and solutions towards a more sustainable Earth. The early career scientists that were involved in the documentary include- 

International Association of Geodesy (IAG) - Hugo Lecomte 
International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA) - Hannah Rogers 
International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior (IASPEI) - María Isaba 
International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (IAVCEI) - Kyriaki Drymoni 
International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Oceans (IAPSO) - Malin Ödalen 
International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) - Bertil Nlend 
International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS) - Jing Li 
International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (IACS) - Erik Loebel 

Narrator - Elodie Kendall

We hope to reach a wide audience through this initiative and spread scientific knowledge to the general public. We also hope it would strengthen the networking between the different IUGG associations, especially for upcoming and early career researchers.
