The Earth's population increases by more than 225,000 people every day! The inevitable overload for the balance of the natural systems on which we depend makes the understanding and management of these systems fundamental to the existence of a sustainable future. The urgency of this problem has led the European Community to consider, in its strategic development program (Horizonte 2020), climate change, resources and raw materials as key domains to the future of Europe, decreasing its dependence relative to other parts of the world. This concern led Portugal to elaborate on the National Strategy for Geological Resources (DR176, 11/9/2012). -
