SVP: Urgent. Take a survey to support SVP’s community.
Dear SVP Members,
Your input is very much needed for an important study being conducted by the National Research Council’s Committee on New Research Opportunities in the Earth Sciences (U.S.). The committee is charged to (1) identify high-priority new and emerging research opportunities in the Earth sciences over the next decade, including surface, surface crust and deep Earth processes and interdisciplinary research with fields such as ocean and atmospheric sciences, biology, paleontology, engineering, computer science, and social and behavioral sciences and (2) identify key instrumentation and facilities needed to support these new and emerging research opportunities. Three members of this study committee (Isabel Montanez, Tim Lyons and Paul Olsen) would like your perspective regarding future research in the Earth sciences. Please take a few minutes to respond to the 3 questions at the following link: http://thenationalacad.nroes.sgizmo.com/
The report will have the biggest impact if our community is well represented. This is an opportunity to share with a broader community and the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) what you feel are high priority areas of focus and opportunities for the future.
Thank you for taking the time to participate in this very important opportunity.
