CALL FOR COMMENTS!
We Would Like to Hear from You!
The National Science Foundation’s Advisory Committee for Geosciences (AC GEO) is updating its 2014 report, Dynamic Earth: GEO Imperatives & Frontiers 2015-2020 to incorporate recent developments and to explore future directions for the many disciplines supported by NSF’s Directorate for Geosciences (GEO).
With your input, AC GEO will develop a report that provides a clear picture of the exciting areas on the leading edge of the geosciences, captures the importance of curiosity-driven research to better understand our planet and its many interconnected systems, and explains the importance of the geosciences to our society and economy.
We welcome your perspective and suggestions on the content and organizational structure for our upcoming report. Input can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Thursday, February 1, 2018. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of this request.
