Geotimes

Geotimes is a free electronic newsfeed for the geoscience community. The American Geosciences Institute coordinates and edits Geotimes, but it is the result of contributed materials from societies, geoscience organizations and others in the community. Do you have a geoscience blog or newsfeed with an RSS feed? It may be a good fit for Geotimes. To learn more about RSS or to submit information to Geotimes by email, please contact Joe Lilek at geotimes@americangeosciences.org. Events can also be listed on the AGI Geoscience Calendar.

Carlos A. Dengo, AGU Development Board Chair A new year is just around the corner. And with it comes the promise of new beginnings and opportunities for personal and professional growth. 2019 is also AGU’s Centennial year – a time for our community to celebrate the scientific advances made in Earth and space science over the past 100 years.  For me, the advent of Centennial leads me to consider how we can make sure that our science will prosper and contribute to society for the next century. I believe that to flourish in the years ahead, we must take steps now to expand AGU’s membership, transcend our traditional demographics and cultural boundaries, and create a more diverse and global community. We must support young scientists who are eager to join our ranks and help them to overcome whatever may stand in their way. These young men and women have the potential to become the next generation of leaders in Earth and space science. They will bring innovative ideas and cultural...

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2018   ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to support member society National Ground Water Association’s Groundwater Week (December 3-6, 2018) with a new online resource pulling together AGI water science resources.   The new web page – Let’s Talk About Water – discusses the importance of groundwater science and highlights AGI water science resources dealing with education, workforce, policy, scholarly information issues, and more.   “Often we seek out the life-sustaining natural resource of water without much thought,” says AGI Executive Director Allyson Anderson Book. “But we consume water without worries only until a crisis threatens the availability of water or its safety. That’s where geoscientists come in.”   Groundwater Week sheds light on one of the world’s most important resources: groundwater. Groundwater is essential to the health and well-being of humanity and the...

Over the last few days, many in our community have clearly stated on social media that AGU’s choice of Senator Cory Gardner for the AGU Presidential Citation is troublesome given some of his statements and actions in reference to climate change. First, we acknowledge that we failed to communicate with the community about the citations and the reasons Senators Cory Gardner and Gary Peters were chosen. Second, we did not act to proactively address the concerns some of you have over Senator Gardner’s selection. While these were failures in process and not intentional, the result was the same: confusion and serious concern about this choice. For that we are deeply sorry. We would like to clarify a few points: AGU established the Presidential Citations in 2012 to recognize leaders whose work has helped advance Earth and space science and increase the understanding and appreciation of its value to society. Honorees are chosen from a variety of sectors, but often include policymakers who...
