A free report release webinar titled “Vision for NSF Earth Sciences 2020-2030: Earth in Time,” will take place on Tuesday, May 19th from 2-3pm EDT. It will explore the contents of the NSF Earth Sciences report which identifies priority research questions as well as the initiatives and partnerships required to answer them. It will also provide recommendations to plan and support research over the next decade.
Society depends on Earth system functions which connect in unexpected ways—from the microscopic interactions of bacteria and rocks to the macro-scale processes that build and erode mountains and regulate Earth’s climate. Efforts to study Earth’s intertwined processes are made even more pertinent and urgent by the need to understand how the Earth can continue to sustain both civilization and the planet’s biodiversity.
