Share your views on future research directions in the Earth sciences

To all members of the Geochemical Society:

Your input is needed for an important study being conducted by the National Research Council's Committee on New Research Opportunities in the Earth Sciences. The committee is charged with

(1) identifying high-priority new and emerging research opportunities in the Earth sciences over the next decade, including surface and deep Earth processes and interdisciplinary research within fields such as ocean and atmospheric sciences, biology, engineering, computer science, and social and behavioral sciences, and

(2) identifying key instrumentation and facilities needed to support these new and emerging research opportunities.

The committee would like your perspective regarding future research in the Earth sciences. Please take a few minutes to respond to the three questions at the following link:

The report will have the biggest impact if each community is well represented. This is your opportunity to share your views with NSF and the broader Earth science community.

Thank you for taking the time to participate in this important survey.
