Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

In view of climate change occurring, caring for the environment, ensuring a well-functioning society, and the consideration of sustainable natural resource management and exploration seem very relevant and interesting from a scientific and practical point of view. On the one hand, the ways natural resources are extracted and the extent to which they are used are largely linked to greenhouse gas emissions.

On the other hand, how we dispose of the resulting waste, segregation, and recycling allows more of it to be absorbed by soils, forests, and oceans. The Topic 'Innovative and Critical Issues in Natural Resource Management and Exploitation' invites submissions of research and review articles that address both the technical and social aspects of the perception of the issue of natural resource extraction and use. The keywords listed suggest only a few of the many possibilities.
