Several of the American Geosciences Institute's member societies have adopted position statements on issues important to the geoscience community and relevant to public policy. This page provides links to those statements that are available on the Web. Separate pages contain testimony and letters delivered by AGI before Congress and federal agencies. We welcome input on any additional member society statements not on this list that are on the Web or could be made available.
