Geodiversity (of an abiotic or inanimate nature) is defined as the natural range (diversity) of geological (rocks, minerals, fossils), geomorphological (landforms, topography, physical processes), soil, and hydrological features including their assemblages, structures, systems, and contribution to landscapes [1,2]. and promote action for biodiversity and geodiversity in England’s minerals industry. This report was commissioned by the Forum in recognition of a need to develop a methodology that could be used to assess the overall impact of aggregate/silica sand.

Geodiversity refers to the diversity (or variety, range) of geological (rocks, minerals, fossils), geomorphological (landform) and soil features, and their assemblages, relationships, properties.

Gray () defined geodiversity as the natural range (diversity) of geological (rocks, minerals, fossils), geomorphological (land form, processes) hydrological and soil features.

It includes. To continue to work with Natural England and local geo-conservation groups to raise the profile of geodiversity and to make quarry sites available as earth science resources. To seek to increase the contribution of the minerals industry to geodiversity action plans.

In a broadly parallel development, the geoconservation community has adopted the concept of geodiversity (Gray, ), which recognises both the wider values of geoheritage for society as well as its role in supporting biodiversity and the need for integrated management of nature (Gordon and Leys, ).Cited by: Geodiversity also provides a number of products useful to man including building materials and minerals for industry, and products such as fossils and minerals, collected by individuals for their own enjoyment.

Finally, geomorphological processes provide a number of essential ecosystem/natural system. This book will be most useful to government employees or academics working in the field of mineral economics and policy. Individuals in the private sector that are primarily interested in economic decision-making from the firm's point of view should look elsewhere.4/5(1).

Introduction. Geodiversity is 'the process of recognising and assessing the value of geological features, collections, sites, monuments, artworks, and landscapes and the application of practices for their care, maintenance and management for the long-term benefit of all'.
