Eduardo F.J. de Mulder

Eduardo Francisco José de Mulder graduated as a geologist from Utrecht University, the Netherlands. He completed his Ph.D. thesis on the geology of Western Greece in 1975. In the same year he joined the Geological Survey of the Netherlands, where he was involved in geological mapping and engineering geological advisory work. In 1983 he was charged with all geological advisory work in the Survey while supervising major projects on land subsidence, disposal of radioactive waste in buried salt domes, and other geo-environmental issues. He also became involved in urban geological issues, both in South East Asia and in Europe. He developed a digital information system for cities to maximally benefit from knowledge of the subsurface. In 1997 he became head of the Geo-Environment Department of TNO, followed by his appointment as Professor in Subsurface Management in Delft Technical University. In 2000, he was appointed President of the International Union of Geological Sciences after a ten-year career in the IUGS Commission on Geological Sciences for Environmental Planning. In that capacity he represented IUGS in the International Council of Sciences (ICSU). To raise the profile of the geosciences in society, de Mulder launched the initiative to proclaim an International Year of Planet Earth (IYPE) by the United Nations. After completion of his term as IUGS President in 2004, he chaired the IYPE Management Team until he was appointed Executive Director of the IYPE Secretariat. De Mulder has published over 120 scientific articles and books, mainly on the application of geoscientific information.
