Abstract:
The Covid-19 global pandemic is affecting millions of people all over the
world. Since the outbreak began daily lives and livelihoods have had to adjust
to the “new normal”: wearing face masks, social distancing, and restrictions on
non-essential travel. Despite these lockdown rules, with available
technologies, geoscience activities continued via virtual lectures, meetings
and seminars. These creative ways of working offer the possibilities and
opportunities for cross-discipline learning and knowledge-sharing during the
pandemic and beyond.
