As an undergraduate, Barbara Murck was a confirmed nonscientist, until an introductory geology course changed her plans. Since then her professional focus has ranged from igneous geochemistry and ore-deposit petrography to alternative energy sources and state-of-the-environment reporting. Her current work focuses primarily on environmental management training for decision makers in developing countries.
Brian Skinner was born and raised in Australia on the edge of what is now called degraded land—some call it desert. That is where he gained his earliest interest in the complex interactions that make up our environment. He has been privileged to work on every continent and to be involved in the beginnings of what we now call the Space Age. His interests are most centrally involved with mineral and energy resources, but because these materials are found in a great many geological environments, his professional interests are diverse.
