Number 35, September 2002
The Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) and its Advisory Committee for Geosciences
(AC/GEO) recognize that active support of geoscience education must be a significant
element of GEO's mission to promote the overall health of the geoscience enterprise.
This commitment extends beyond the familiar tradition of support for the training
of graduate students to embrace geoscience education reform at the undergraduate
and pre-college levels and active outreach to the public.
In addition to research programs in the atmospheric, earth, and ocean sciences,
the Directorate supports a number of crosscutting and interdisciplinary programs:
- Global Change Research
- Biocomplexity in the Environment
- Programs to support Geosciences Education
- Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences
