Minster for Natural Resources, Fergus O’Dowd, today opens a two day conference in Dublin Castle that will outline the significant contribution that Geoscience makes in the protection of Irish society. Today’s programme concentrates on “A Safe City; The Contribution of Geoscience in the Urban Environment” and is hosted by the Royal Irish Academy (RIA), the Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI) and the Geological Survey of Northern Ireland (GSNI). The programme examines flooding, subsidence, landslides, the challenges of tunnelling, contaminated land and state-of-the-art 3D modelling of subsurface geology in case-studies of cities in Ireland, the UK and across Europe.
